INTRODUCTION 

The Morris family traces back to the time of Elthelstan and 
Alfred, who reigned in England in the ninth and tenth centuries. 
Maurice, Morys, and Morres are names found in the records 
of the time; have been compounded with the prefixes Fitz, as 
Fitzmorris, Clan, Mount, De, &c. The name is supposed to be 
of Welsh origin, as Maur Rwyce and Mawr Rhys, meaning 
Mawr, war ; Rhys, rushing — rushing to war — ■ warlike. 

Thomas Morris was a shipbuilder and a Puritan, who left 
England with other pilgrims in the year of Hampden's resis- 
tance to the arbitrary exactions of Charles, the First. At least 
two of the Morris family had fallen in martyrdom in the reign 
of " Bloody Queen Mary," and the Morris name may be found 
on the pages of history during the parliamentary struggles with 
Charles the First, and as soldiers under Cromwell. 

Thomas Morris arrived in Boston June 26, 1637. He took 
sail with a party of other Londoners and landed at Quinnipiac, 
now New Haven, March 30, 1638, arriving at their destination 
about the middle of April of that year. He purchased a tract 
of land near New Haven on the i6th of March, 1671, on ac- 
count of its timber. This land has ever since been known as 
Morristown. The estate descended from Thomas to his son 
Eleazer, who gave it to his son John, who in turn, having no 
children, gave it to his nephew Amos, one of the sons of his 
brother James. Although held in the family, the property had 
not been occupied up to this time; Amos was the first proprie- 
tor actually residing upon the land and one of his descendants 
has ever since occupied it.

EARLIEST KNOWN RECORD OF THE MORRIS 
FAMILY 

Under the entry " Morrice of Betshanger House, County of Kent," 
Burke in his " Commoners," Vol. Ill, p. 232, says : — 

" The family of Morrice [Morris] is of great antiquity, and can be 
traced in lineal descent from Athelstan Glodrydd, Prince of Ferlex, 
betwixt Wye and Severn, who sprung from the old Princes of Powys, 
and who through his mother, Rheingar, daughter and heir of Grono 
ap Tudor Trevor, was eighth in a direct line from Caradoc Vriechfras, 
Lord of Hereford, one of the knights of King Arthur's Round Table 
(540). Athelstan Glodrydd was godson of Athelstan, King of England 
(924), and founded the fourth royal tribe of Wales. He married Gwladys, 
daughter and heir of Rhij, Lord of Pegain, and was father of Cadwgan 
ap Elystan, who married Elen, daughter of Brochwel, Lord of Powis, 
and had a son Hoedliw ap Cadwgan, Lord of Radnor, Prince of Ferlex." 

From Lewys Dwnn's " Heraldic Visitations of Wales, edited by Sir 
Samuel R. Meyrick," Vol. 1, p. 297-98, and other sources, the following 
line of descent from Teon, or Theonus (also called Theanus), Arch- 
bishop of Gloucester (542), translated to London in 553, and driven back 
to Armorica in 558, is made out. 

1. Teon, himself descended from Beli Mawr, King of all England 
and Wales, had son. 

2. Tegonwy, father of 

3. lorwerth Hirvlawdd, who had 

4. Idnerth, son of lorwerth Hirvlawdd,

15. Severus, son of Cadwaladr Gwenwynwyn, married Lleiky, daughter 
of Morgan Mynvawr, King of Glamorgan (872). Reigned from 893 to 
loor, when he died aged 129 years. (Gildas, Welch Chronicle.) 

16. Ivor,* son of Severus, married Isabel, daughter of Tryffin, son of 
Cadell Deyrnllyg, King of Powys. 

17. Cyhelyn, son of Ivor, married Rheingar, daughter of Gronwy, son 
of Tudor Trevor by Gwladus, daughter of Howel Dda (d. 948), King 

* As Cadell Deyrnllyg lived in the sixth century, it is evident that several gen- 
erations are here omitted. (Meyrick.)

1. James High Sheriff of Surrey, 1764. 

2. Roger, born Jan. 28, 1727, Lt. Col. and King's Councellor, N. Y., 
married Mary, daughter of Frederick Phillipse, a beautiful brunette. She 
was the original of Cooper's heroine in " The Spy " and was long said to 
be one of George Washington's loves, but the story that she rejected him 
is not true. Five years after meeting Washington she married Roger 
Morris, with whom she lived in what was afterwards Washington's head- 
quarters and the house and her property were confiscated at the opening 
of the Revolution and she went to England. Her surviving children, 
being free according to the ruling of the English Attorney General, sold 
their right to John Jacob Astor for twenty thousand dollars and the 
British government paid $17,000 more for themselves.

Sellick in "History of Norwalk," page 311- says of Hezekiah Jarvis, 
that he sat in pew No. 29 of St. Paul's Church, Norwalk, " with his well 
demeanored household beside him." " The picture of Hezekiah Jarvis, 
prayer-book in hand, leading his family on the Lord's day to the sanctu- 
ary, recalls the custom of the English squire of a former period, carry- 
ing the same large sized volume in one hand, as emerging from the 
house he early started on Sunday morning for the parish church." 

The " Jarvis Genealogy," page 26, says, " he was a devoted and honored 
member of the church, having been elected to office in the same April 6, 
1781, and continued to be so elected for a period of fifty-four years, thirty 
of which he was elected and served as warden. At Easter, 1835, he de- 
clined a re-election on account of his advanced age and thus ended his 
long term of usefulness as an officer of the church." " His youngest 
son (by his second wife), a graduate of Union College, entered the min- 
istry of the church."

JOHN MORRIS RECORD

Capt. John Morris, ist, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Morris, born 

March 8, 1646, died December 10, 1711, married, first Anna , who died 

December 4, 1664. He married, second, Elisabeth Lyne Lampson, March 
29, 1665. She was a daughter of -Richard Harrison, of West Kerby, 
Cheshire County, Conn., and widow of John Lyne and the second wife 
of John Lampson. In 1668, John Morris, ist, and Elizabeth Morris, late 
of New Haven, were appointed guardians of Hopistill Lyne, daughter of 
John Lyne, first husband of Mrs. Morris. 

Elizabeth Morris, wife of Thomas Morris, survived her husband, and 
his eldest son and heir, Capt. John Morris, ist, is on record as being 
satisfied with the disposal his mother made of the estate. His father's 
plot of land as originally drawn in the allotment in the town of Passaic 
was No. 31 by an old map. This farm lot appears as situated at the 
corner of Orange and High Streets on a later map made about 1800. 
This lot bears another name so that it must have exchanged hands be- 
fore that date. 

Under date of April 27, 1694, Capt. John Morris received a patent for 
120 acres of land and later about 100 more, "on the bend of the Third 
River " in Watserson, afterwards called Bloomfield. This " Morris Plan- 
tation " latter became known as " Morris Mills," Stephen Morris, son 
of Capt. John, having established there a saw mill and grist mill. 

John Morris, ist, married, third, Hannah Bishop, August 12, 1669, died 
January 12, 1710. She was a daughter of Deputy Governor James Bishop, 
of New Haven, Conn.

OBITUARY 



" Died, at Bloomfield, N. J., January 31, 1859, Stephen Morris, aged 
82 years. The following note, placed in the hands of the pastor-elect of 
the Presbyterian church, as he was proceeding to the funeral, and by him 
communicated as a part of his discourse, presents his character very 
justly: 

"Rev. Mr. Nezvton. 

" Dear Sir : The singular providence which calls you, a stranger, to 
officiate this morning at the obsequies of a patriarch of our community, 
may justify one who from his childhood has known the deceased to 
introduce you briefly to his character. Our aged friend was a native of 
Bloomfield and not only widely known, but was perhaps more extensively 
regarded with feelings of affectionate interest than any man who has 
ever lived amongst us. The deceased was, forty years ago, one of the 
most public characters in our community. No person then in Bloomfield, 
whether man, or woman, or child, but knew Stephen Morris ; and to 
know him was to feel that if no one else would feel kindly toward them, 
or do them a favor, he would. His uniform urbanity, sympathy and 
obliging disposition, gave him a place in public esteem which he has 
ever held and which I am sure will bring very many to-day to pay their 
last respects to his memory, with a depth of interest which will make a 
green grave for his remains. The blessing of many is upon him. His 
pastor, his poor or unfortunate neighbors, his employees, can each refer 
to many tokens of his benevolence and sympathy. He has long been a 
follower of the Saviour and now doubtless has gone to realize the reward 
pledged to him who illustrated the genius of the gospel, in kindness to 
others and interest in their welfare. Hallowed and precious will ever be 
the memory of our dear old friend whom we are called this day to con- 
sign to the tomb! 

" An examination of his papers brings to light an interesting docu- 
ment not known by his family to have been in existence, and the like 
of which is a rarity, even in historical collections. The original grant of 
land from the proprietors of East Jersey, in the reign of William H,

JOHN MORRIS RECORD 97 



OBITUARY 

Mr. Charles B. Morris was born in Montclair, October 14, 1836. He 
was the son of William S. Morris, who was a man of affairs in his 
time and established the first hardware business here. He was also a 
factor in giving Montclair, or West Bloomfield, as this place was then 
known, needed railroad facilities by working for the extension of the 
Bloomfield branch of the Morris and Essex Railroad. 

Mr. Morris attended the public schools of this place and then entered 
Princeton University, from which he graduated with the degree of civil 
engineer in 1859. Many tracts of land were surveyed by him in this 
vicinity with an accuracy which was never questioned. 

In 1869, ten years after he graduated from Princeton, he was elected 
Justice of the Peace. He was a student of the law and the knowledge 
thus gained fitted him admirably for the office. Term after term he 
was reelected until failing health admonished him to retire. The office 
of Justice of the Peace in the early days of Montclair was no less 
important than it is to-day. With the help of but a limited constabulary, 
Mr. Morris administered the law and preserved good order at all times. 
Evil doers feared him more than they did the courts in Newark, but at 
the same time he was a friend to the unfortunate, and by his good 
advice and counsel kept many a man who committed his first offense from 
going to prison. 

Mr. Morris was a conservative man and acted with a caution in his 
dealings with all who came before him. By rare tact he was instru- 
mental in bringing men together and settling their differences without 
the aid of the law. Every trust reposed in him was carefully guarded 
and accounted for. His personal integrity was at all times a guarantee 
of the genuineness of any document that bore his signature, and it 
passed current upon its face with public officials and the justices of the 
higher courts. 

Few men were more active in founding the Y. M. C. A. in its earlier 
period. He was on the State Executive Committee, and was a con- 
sistent member of the First Presbyterian Church, and later of Trinity 
Church. 

Politically, Mr. Morris was a Republican, interested in the practical 
workings of the party as well as its principles. He served for three 
years as assessor, and also held the office of recorder. 

Mr. Morris was twice married, his second wife surviving him. He 
also leaves two sons, George P. Morris, a leading editorial writer of 
The Congregationalist, of Boston, and William B. Morris, of Minneapolis, 
and a daughter, Lucy Morris, of Morristown.

At the time of the British invasion of New Haven, in 1779, Deacon 
Ball had in charge the communion silver belonging to the First Qiurch 
of New Haven, some of the cups of which are very valuable from his- 
torical associations. How to save this silver? The wide, open chimneys 
of those days usually contained a shelf inside high enough to be beyond 
common reaching distance. Taking his little daughter Mary in his 
arms, he lifted her into the chimney with the silver in her hands, which 
she deposited on the shelf. The British soldiers searched everywhere 
for it in vain. (See Townsend's "Invasion of New Haven.") Miss 
Tracy has just had a sketch made of one of those cups (presented to 
the church in 1724) to be used in a Prout family article.

Eliza Ann Mulford, born November 26, 1798, died at Raynham, East 
Haven, January 3, 1881, greatly admired, honored and beloved by all 
who knew her. New Haven papers published extended obituary notices 
in which her character is described as " radiant, from a rare union of 
accomplishments, of endearing qualities and of Christian virtues." Her 
son, Capt. Charles H. Townsend, has traced her ancestral lines back to 
fifty or more of the first settlers of New England, among them four 
Mayflowers, John Howland and his wife Elizabeth Tilley, and her 
parents. She was married, December 3, 1820, to Hon. William Kneeland 
Townsend, son of Isaac and Rhoda (Atwater) Townsend, born June 3, 
1796. He was a merchant, director of the New Haven Bank, president 
of several corporations and associations, lieutenant of Second Company 
Governor's Horse Guards, Justice of the Peace and Representative in 
the Connecticut Legislature from East Haven. He retired about 1830 to 
his estate in East Haven, called " Raynham " after the family seat 
of the English Townshends, ancestors of the East Haven family, and 
died there September 23, 1849. This fine property is beautifully located 
on the east side of New Haven harbor and is part of the original grant 
of the New Haven Colony to William Tuttle.

1647. Raynham, " July lo, 1878 

" Charles Hervey Townshend died shortly before midnight at his resi- 
dence on Church Street. He had been in ill health for almost a year. 
About three months ago Captain Townshend had a serious attack of 
illness, but he recovered. Last Sunday he was seized with a nervous 
collapse and since then his condition rapidly failed. 

" Captain Townshend was a valuable citizen, and one who had the 
interest of his native city always at heart. For a number of years he 
interested himself and worked in behalf of the project for the con- 
struction of the system of breakwaters at the entrance of the harbor, 
which are now almost completed. He was 70 years of age. 



AMY HEMINWAY RECORD 135 

"Capt. Charles Hervey Townshend was born at Raynham, in East 
Haven, November 26, 1833, and was the seventh in descent from Thomas 
Townsend, or Townshend, who settled at the Lynn colony of Massa- 
chusetts bay in 1638. He was educated at private schools in New Haven 
and in Farmington, Conn. 

" When about 15 years of age he made his first sea voyage on the 
'Hyperion,' a bark of 219 tons, built for Timothy Dwight, of New Haven, 
and launched at the Quinnipiac shipyard in the year 1848. He sailed 
from New York on his first sea voyage on the 19th of April, 1849, for 
Trinidad, West Indies, returning home via St. Croix and St. Thomas to 
Baltimore. After two more voyages on the same vessel — one to the 
West Indies and one to the Mediterranean — young Townshend shipped 
as ordinary seaman under Capt. E. G. Tinker on the ' Margaret Evans,' of 
1,200 tons burthen, one of the original line of New York and London 
packet ships, and made one voyage ; then changed to the ' Southampton,' 
1,500 tons of the same line. This was then the largest and finest ship 
in the trade. In her he made several voyages as able seaman and the last 
two as third mate. When appointed to this position he was not quite 
18 years old. 

" After studying navigation a few months at New Haven under the 
tuition of Stiles French, he returned to New York and joined the 
' Helvetia,' 1,200 tons, Capt. B. F. March, of Whitlock's New York and 
Havre Union line of packet ships, and in her made four voyages, the 
first two as third mate and the last two as second mate. He then 
changed to the ' Germania,' 1,500 tons, Captain D. H. Wood of the same 
line, and made several voyages to Havre as first officer. 

" Early in the year Captain Townshend took command of the New 
York and Havre packet ship ' Bavaria.' In about eight years he had 
worked up through every grade, from the lowest to the highest, in the 
merchant service, and in that highest grade stood among the first. He 
was now in his 23d year. He made two voyages in command of the 
' Bavaria ' and then went back to his old ship, the ' Germania,' as cap- 
tain, in which he made thirteen voyages, all to Havre, excepting one to 
James River, Va., and Havre, one to Mobile and Havre, another to New 
Orleans and Havre and one from New York to San Francisco, Puget 
Sound, Queenstown, London, Cardiff in Wales, and thence to New York, 
during which voyage he escaped capture by Confederates."

Timothy Beers Townsend, born November 21, 1835, Yale Medical 
School, 1858, Physician and Surgeon. During the Civil War he rendered 
efficient service as surgeon at Knight's Hospital. Was one of the first 
surgeons in the country to perform the C^sarian operation. It was suc- 
cessful. Was offered the professorship of surgery at Yale, but declined.

REV. JAMES DAVENPORT RECORD 

1727* 

Rev. James Davenport, born in Stamford, Conn., 1716, 2d son of the 
Rev. John Davenport and second vi^ife (834) Elizabeth (Morris) Maltbie, 
daughter of (3) John Morris first, son of Thomas first, who settled in 
New Haven, 1638. 

He was educated at Yale College, where he graduated in 1732. He 
settled in Southhold, Long Island, in 1738. Southhold was the first set- 
tled town on Long Island and originally extended from Brookhaven to 
Oyster Point, including all the islands in that vicinity. Before the 
emigrants from Norfolkshire, England, who had spent two years in 
New Haven Colony, established themselves on this Island, in 1640, they 
were advised by Governor Eaton and John Davenport to organize into 
a regular church under a pastor. Rev. John Young accompanied them 
to the Island. Mr. James Davenport was the fourth pastor of this 
church and remained there about two years and was esteemed a pious, 
sound and faithful minister. But in 1740, at the time Whitefield came 
to this country, and a season of great religious excitement prevailed, 
Mr. Davenport became carried away with enthusiastic impulses and with- 
out asking the approbation of his people, set out on an itinerancy among 
the churches, leaving his own particular charge unprovided for. He 
believed that the Lord was about to rise and have mercy upon Zion, 
for the time to favor her, yea, the set time was come and he was 
especially called to prepare the way of the Lord by calling the people 
to repentance. Before leaving Southhold, he assembled the people at 



REV. JAMES DAVENPORT RECORD 157 

his lodging and addressed them for twenty-four hours together. The 
effort overcame his strength and confined him for some days to his 
home. (See Prime's "History of Long Island." The "Great Awaken- 
ing," by Rev Joseph Tracy.) The last and most extravagant of these pub- 
lic proceedings of Mr. Davenport was at New London, where he was in- 
vited in the spring of 1743 to organize a church. To cure the people 
there of their idolatrous love of worldly things, he called on them to 
collect their ornaments, consisting of jewels, rings, &c., and also clothes, 
that they might be committed to the flames, and even added to the 
list a number of books, the works of Beveridge, Flavel, &c. From this 
time, Mr. Davenport seeins to have withdrawn from his public career 
and through the efforts of his personal friends, the Rev. Drs. Williams 
and Wheelock, of Lebanon, the latter of whom had married his sister, 
he became convinced that in his course he had committed many errors 
and voluntarily published a full and most ingenuous confession of the 
extravagance into which he had been led by a bad spirit. Mr. Daven- 
port was formally dismissed from Southhold, Long Island, in 1746, and 
settled at Hopewell, New Jersey, where he usefully labored for some 
years and died in 1755.

Rev. John Davenport, 4Th, born at Freehold, New Jersey, August ii,

degree of A.M. at Yale College in 1785. He studied Theology with Drs. 
Bellamy and Buel and was ordained at Mattatuck, a parish in the 
town of Southhold, Long Island, June 4, 1775, and served the congrega- 
tion there as a stated supply for two years. He was an amiable and 
excellent man and labored for some time in different parts of the Island 
and was dismissed from the Presbytery of Suffolk, April 12, 1786. 
While at Mattatuck, he was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Barker, the widow 
of his predecessor, the Rev. Nathaniel Barker, by the Rev. John Storrs, 
December i8, 1775, with whom, notwithstanding the great disparity in 
their ages, he lived happily for many years. He was the first minister 
upon Long Island that refused to administer baptism upon the indulgent 
plan. He was settled in Bedford, New York, and afterwards at Deer- 
field, New York, August 12, 1795, and dismissed from feeble health in 
1805. In 1809 he returned to the State of New York, and died at 
Lysander, July 13, 1825.

Elizabeth Smith, a daughter of Thomas and Abigail (Thompson) Smith, 
of East Haven, Conn. He removed to Great Barrington, Mass., in 
1762. According to family tradition, he wished to leave the seashore 
because one of his sons had been drowned at sea. He lived to be 94 
and was an earnest, devout man. His granddaughter says his favorite 
psalm was the 4th of Watts' version and her mother remembers his 
singing it to her often. In his 94th year he wrote a letter, which she 
has seen, " to my children and grandchildren on the other side of the 
world," which, no doubt, Western Pennsylvania seemed to him.

1779. After an unsettled period, on account of Indian disturbances, 
they went, in 1783, to Cherry Valley, the Dickson home, where Capt. 
Dickson was a successful merchant. The Dicksons, however, seem to 
have the pioneer spirit and in 1789, the family removed to Westmoreland 
County, Penn., and later to Erie County, Penn., where Mary (Morris) 
Dickson died, 1831. She was a saintly woman, and her children and 
grandchildren rose up and called her blessed. Her prayers were asked 
by ministers and all in trouble. She was carefully educated at a school 
in Litchford. She was a most earnest christian and had a strong in- 
fluence over her children. She was adored by her children. One said, 
" Mother does not need to prepare to die, she is always ready."

MEMOIRS OF JAMES MORRIS, 3RD 

Written by Himself 

I was born in Litchfield, South Farms, Conn., January 19, 1752, of 
religious parents. My father, whose name was James, was born in New 
Haven in 1722, and died in Litchfield, June 6, 1789, in the sixty-eighth 
year of his age. He was married to the widow Phebe Barnes on the 
8th day of April, 1751. My mother was born in Brandford, August 2, 
1712, and died in April, 1793. I had but one sister, Lucy, who married 
James Woodrufif. I was married to Elizabeth Hubbard of Middletown, 
December 20, 1781. She was born December 27, 1750. We were blessed 
with five children — Abigail, James, Reuben, Samuel and Robert. Abigail 
was born August 2, 1783, and was married to Rev. John M. Whiton of 
Antrim, N. H., October 18, 1808. 

In looking back to my early childhood, I can well remember that I 
was very much attached to my books. I learned to read when I was 
four years old, and I plead with my father to get me a new Bible. My 
father had a large Bible that he made use of and he told me that I 
might read in his Bible, and when I had read it through, he would get 
me a new one. I then applied myself to reading, and read his large 
Bible through by the time I was six years old. My father, always 
faithful to his word, then bought me a new Bible of the common size. 
He was always very particular to call on me when I returned from meet- 
ing, to render an account of what I had heard the minister say, and I 
could not be excused if I did not remember the text. On any Sabbath 
that I did not remember the text, I was made to sit down on a small 
bench, or form, and there to sit till sundown, which I found to be a 
great punishment, especially in the summer time when the days were 
very long. My father lived only three miles from Bethlehem meeting- 
house and six or seven from Litchfield meeting-house. He was much 
attached to Dr. Bellamy of Bethlehem and I was brought up under his 
preaching. My parents dedicated me to God in baptism, and Dr. Bel- 
lamy administered the ordinance in the old meeting-house (as I have 
been informed) in my early infancy. I often recollect the awakening 
sermons preached by Dr. Bellamy, and they will be remembered by me 
in Eternity, the remembrance of which will swell my song of redeeming 



176 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

love, or increase the gnawings of that worm which will never die, in 
the howlings of eternal despair. 

In my youthful days I had an ardent desire to have a public educa- 
tion, and my ultimate desire was to be a minister. But being the only 
son of my father, he could not brook the idea of my leaving him for 
that purpose. He meant that I should live with him, and be the earthly 
prop on which he might lean in his old age. He accordingly built him 
a house forty feet by thirty, kitchen back, chimney at each end and 
spaceway through, with the design that I should eventually live in 
half of it. This was the common fireside chat when I was but nine 
years old; but I could not bear the thought of making that house my 
abode through life. My father had a right in the Public Library in 
Bethlehem, and the books that he drew from time to time I was fond 
of reading. They were chiefly sermons and ecclesiastical history — I 
remember I was particularly fond of " Watts on the Mind." When I 
found a sentence of Latin in any book, I was exceedingly desirous of 
knowing the meaning of it. My desire increased for a public education 
till I arrived at the age of eighteen years. I had often solicited my 
father to let me go to college, till my solicitations wearied him, and the 
winter I was eighteen he told me that if I would go and sled home a. 
certain quantity of wood, I might try what I could do in the study of 
Latin. In about three weeks I had sledded home sixty loads of wood, 
loading and unloading the same myself. I then went to live at Dr, 
Bellamy's and was put under the tuition of Mr. Thomas Miner, who 
was studying divinity with Dr. Bellamy. I applied myself closely to my 
studies. I was first put into the Accidence, all of which I committed 
perfectly to memory. I was then put into Lilly's Latin Grammar, no 
English word being in the book. I understood nothing of what I was 
committing to memory. I used to study and cry because I got no ideas. 
I was almost ready to give up my pursuit. I used to look at my in- 
structor and hear him talk, and sometimes listen to his answers to Dr. 
Bellamy, and I finally concluded with myself that I had as much sense 
as Thomas Miner, and if he had learned Latin and gone through col- 
lege, then certainly I could. I would then take hold of old Lilly and 
plod away again. 

This continued till the spring of 1770, when I returned to my father. 
It was his idea that I remain at home and pursue my studies with Rev. 
Mr. Herbert, who was preaching in this place. I accordingly sat down 
to my studies at home, but I made but little progress, as I was con- 
stantly interrupted. It was " James, you must bring in some wood," 
" You must split some wood fine for the oven," " You must draw some 
water and bring it in," "You must harness the old mare; your mother 
wants to ride." When haying and harvest came on, my father said, 
" Well, James, I think you must lay aside your studies till after harvest. 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD 177 

Help is hard to get and we cannot aflford to lose our crops." So I was 
shuffled about from pillar to post till fall, when my father consented 
that I should live at Mr. Brinsmade's in New Washington. Mr. Nathan 
Hale, now Judge Hale of Goshen, was then studying theology with Mr. 
Brinsmade. Besides I was to have some company pursuing the same 
studies with myself, viz.: Adoniram Judson and David Judson. Mr. 
Hale was an accurate scholar and an able instructor. 

I continued my studies under Judge Hale till 1771. I then went to 
New Haven, sometimes elated with hope, sometimes depressed with fear 
lest I should not enter college. But as it happened, I passed a good 
examination, and was admitted a member of college. After the usual 
vacation, I went to college in October, 1771, and applied myself to my 
studies with a determination to be the best scholar in my class. I passed 
through college beloved of my classmates and respected by my tutor 
(now President Dwight) and the members of the faculty. But as God 
was pleased to direct I was thwarted in my desire to be the best scholar 
in my class. I was taken sick the first winter and confined three 
months. I did but little in my classics till the May vacation. But, 
however, I passed a decent examination at the close of the term in May. 
I passed through college having my share of honorary appointments. 
There was no public commencement, and when my class were examined 
for their degrees in the month of July, 1775, and degrees were conferred, 
I returned to my father and went faithfully to work haying and harvest- 
ing. Being determined to make theology my study, I went in the fall 
for that purpose to live with Dr.- Bellamy, with three of my intimates 
at college, David Fuller, Seth Swift and Adoniram Judson. We pur- 
sued our studies with zeal, being pleasantly situated with the best of 
instructors. I had, during my college life, many serious impulses and 
many stirrings of grace. I was disposed to quarrel with the doctrines 
of election, divine decrees, fore-ordination and free agency. I prayed 
for divine direction. I prayed that the path of duty might be made 
plain before me. I wrote upon a system of questions given to me by 
Dr. Bellamy, and wrote a few sermons. 

The study of theology was my delight, but I thought my heart was 
not right. In the midst of these conflicting feelings, I had an invitation 
to teach the grammar school in my native town. I had an offer of hand- 
some wages if I would undertake it. I consulted my father, who had 
been at considerable expense in my education, and felt himself straight- 
ened. The Revolutionary War had commenced. The British were in pos- 
session of Boston. Many of our young men were called away for the 
defense of our country. My father thought I had better undertake to 
teach school, and accordingly I began sometime in the winter of 1776 
and kept the school till sometime in May of the same year. 

Then, unthought of and unsolicited, I had an ensign's commission 



178 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

sent to me from the Legislature of this State to go on a tour of six 
months to New York. This appointment threw me into a painful situa- 
tion, not knowing what to do. I still meant to pursue the study of 
divinity. I went to Dr. Bellamy and asked his advice. He said that our 
country was in peril and my father had property to defend. It was a 
dull time for preachers. We were all in an uproar. He thought I had 
better accept the commission, as the war might be over in six months. 
The doctor told me that his son Jonathan, my friend and companion in 
college, was going with a like commission, and I had better accompany 
him. I accordingly followed his advice, with the consent of my father, 
meaning at the same time to resume my studies the ensuing fall if I 
lived to return. 

I went to New York with a company of men, was in the battle of 
Long Island on the 27th of August, was in the retreat from Long Island 
in the night, when our army made a safe retreat to New York. Was 
in the battle of York Island the 15th of September, the day the British 
took possession of the same. Was in the battle of White Plains, where 
sundry of the soldiers, my friends and acquaintances were killed and 
where I heard the bitter groans of the wounded. Many I feared had 
taken their release from this world of sin for a world of eternal woe. 
The captain and lieutenant of the company to which I belonged were 
taken sick and removed from the camp and the command of the com- 
pany devolved upon me. The soldiers universally manifested a great 
respect for me, for my care of them and my attention to their wants, 
and for my sympathy in their distresses. 

The army retreated from White Plains to a place called Newcastle, 
and General Washington crossed the North River into New Jersey. 
The troops whose enlistments had expired remained at Newcastle. My 
time of engagement ended in December, but previously, without any 
desire on my part, I had a commission of a second lieutenancy sent me 
from Congress, to continue in service during the war. The soldiers were 
desirous that I should accept, and told me if I would, they would enlist. 
I returned home on the 26th of December, to consult my father and 
friends, and on the first day of January I had a commission sent me of 
a first lieutenancy. As the aspect of affairs grew more and more threat- 
ening and gloomy, I finally consented to enter service during the war. 
I enlisted between thirty and forty men, more than half the company. 

During the winter of 1777 I lived in Litchfield in the recruiting service, 
and received an order from the general to superintend the hospital in 
this town for the inoculation of all the soldiers who had not previously 
had the smallpox. Nearly two hundred of them were inoculated by the 
month of May, 1777. In the month of June, I marched with the men 
I had enlisted, and joined the army at Peekskill, and there passed a 
summer's campaign. In the month of September, General Washington 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD 179 

moved the army from the banks of the Hudson across the Delaware 
into the State of Pennsylvania. We encamped between the river Lehigh 
and Philadelphia, and on the 3d of October, 1777, the army had orders 
to march to Germantown. 

I left my baggage, and my Bible, which my father bought for me when 
I was six years old, in my trunk. I marched with only my military suit 
and my implements of war, without any change of dress, or even a 
blanket. We marched in the evening and reached Germantown by 
break of day on the morning of the 4th. The memorable battle of 
Germantown then commenced. Our army was apparently successful in 
driving the enemy from their intrenchments, and victory, in the outset- 
ting, seemed to perch on our banners. 

But the success of the day, by the misconduct of General Stephens, 
turned against us. Many fell in battle, and about five hundred of our 
men surrendered prisoners of war, I being in the first column, at the 
head of one company. What began the attack on the enemy was accord- 
ingly the last to retreat. Our men, then undisciplined, were scattered. 
I had marched with a few men nearly ten miles before I was captured, 
continually harassed by the British dragoons and light infantry. I finally 
surrendered to save life, with the few men under my command, and 
marched back to Germantown under a guard. My waiter, a strong, 
athletic man, carried my blanket and provisions, with a canteen of whis- 
key. He made his escape, and was not taken, so I was left without 
any refreshment from break of day in the morning till night. Then I 
was driven back to Germantown, after performing a march of nearly 
forty miles from the evening before at six o'clock. I reached German- 
town a prisoner of war about sunset and much exhausted. I was the 
last officer taken, with about twenty men. The men with me had a lit- 
tle food in their knapsacks, but I had none. After sundown I was shiv- 
ering with the cold, and asked the sergeant of the guard if I might see 
the commander of the regiment. The sergeant, who was manly and 
sympathetic, escorted me to the house where the commander was quar- 
tered, and informed him that an American officer, a prisoner of war, 
wished to speak with him. The colonel said he would see him after he 
had supper. Accordingly I sat down on the stoop and waited about 
fifteen minutes, when the colonel came out and sat down. He asked 
me many questions respecting my motives for going to war, rising in 
rebellion against my lawful sovereign. I answered him pleasantly and 
as evasively as I could consistently with decency. He asked me what 
I wanted. I told him I was in a suffering condition, I had no blanket 
nor any covering to shield me from the cold. I wished for liberty to 
sleep in the house, and that I stood in need of food. The colonel ordered 
his servants to get me some victuals and said I might go into the room 
where they were. I went into the room. The servants politely spread 



i8o GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

a table, set on some good old spirits and a broiled chicken, well cooked, 
with excellent bread and butter, and other food of the best kind. The 
servants sat off in the room and waited on me in the best manner. 
This was really the best meal of victuals I ever ate in my life. 

After supper I asked the sergeant what the colonel said about my 
sleeping in the house. He replied that the colonel said I was not on 
parole, that he was not at liberty to grant a parole of honor and that 
I must sleep under the eye of the guard. I then asked if I could have 
a blanket for the night. The soldiers who were waiters to the colonel 
immediately brought me a large and clean rose blanket. I accordingly 
went out into the field and lay down among the soldiers who were 
prisoners and wrapped myself in my blanket, kept my hat on my head 
and slept soundly till morning. Before I lay down, the sergeant told me 
he observed I had a watch and silver knee-buckles. If I would give 
them to him he would return them in the morning, for the soldiers of 
the guard would probably rob me of them. I accordingly committed 
them to him, and he very honorably returned them in the morning. 
This was the fifth of October. The prisoners this day had their allowance 
of provisions dealt out to them for the day. These were cooked by the 
soldiers who were prisoners and I partook with them in one common 
mess. Near the setting of the sun of the fifth, the prisoners were 
ordered to be escorted to Philadelphia, a distance of about six miles. 
We then marched on, and arrived at the new jail in Philadelphia about 
eight o'clock in the evening. I was locked into a cold room destitute 
of everything but cold stone walls and bare floors. Not a seat to sit on, 
all total darkness, not a morsel to eat or water to drink. Destitute of 
a blanket to cover me, I groped about my solitary cell, and in moving 
about I found two or three persons on the floor asleep. I said nothing 
to them nor they to me. I stood on my feet and leaned my back 
against the wall and sometimes moved about the room. Then, to change 
my position I sat down on the floor. I got no sleep nor slumber, parched 
with thirst and not a person to whom I could call for water. In short 
it was a long and dreary and most gloomy night. I reflected on the 
miseries of the damned in that eternal prison of despair. But still Hope 
hovered around my soul, that I should see another morning. Morning 
at length arrived, and at a very late hour we were furnished with some 
hard sea bread and salt pork and given some water to drink. Being 
altogether moneyless, I could purchase nothing for my comfort. I soon 
sold my watch for half its value. 

With the money obtained, I was able to purchase some food pleasant 
to my taste. I wholly gave up my allowance of provisions to the poor 
soldiers. At this time was confined in the jail seven hundred prisoners 
of war. A few small rooms were sequestered for the officers. Each 
room must contain sixteen men. We fully covered the floor when we 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD i8i 

lay down to rest, and the poor soldiers were shut into rooms of the 
same magnitude with double the number. The soldiers were soon seized 
with jail fever, as it is called, and in the course of three months it swept 
off four hundred men, who were all buried in one continuous grave, 
without coffins. The length of a man was the width of a grave, lying 
three deep, one upon another. I thus lived in jail from the Sth of 
October, 1777, to the month of May, 1781, our number daily decreasing 
by the King of Terrors. Such a scene of mortality I never witnessed 
before. Death was so frequent that it ceased to terrify; it ceased to 
warn; it ceased to alarm survivors. I was confined there with officers 
from the Southern States. The card table and the bottle were their 
companions, and a common saying was : " Let us do this to kill time." 
Oh ! what a lesson of instruction, when the longest life is but a dream, 
a shadow, a vapor, its precious moments are a burden ! 

I made contract with a good family in Philadelphia to furnish me two 
meals a day at $2 per week. I thus lived during my continuance in jail, 
and by the means of this good family, I obtained the privileges of the 
use of the public library in the city. My time was devoted to reading. 
The noise of the card table, the common routine of employment day after 
day ceased to disturb me, because it had become so familiar. I read 
and wrote, leaning upon the wide recess of the window, to my advantage 
and improvement. I endeavored to prevent my mind becoming soured 
by the severities of misfortune. Early in the spring, I began to lose 
my usual alertness and activity and by the beginning of May I had 
become so debilitated that I was admitted on parole in the city, on the 
i6th day. I there continued with the kind family which had befriended 
me till some time in the month of June. When the British left Phila- 
delphia I was put on board with other prisoners and sailed down the 
river Delaware to New York. I was then put on my parole of honor, 
and boarded with a plain Dutch family in King's County, at the west 
end of Long Island. We were confined within the limits of that cotmty. 

At Flatbush, I became acquainted with a Mr. Clarke, a man of science 
and of large property. He owned the most extensive private library 
that I had ever known in the Utiited States. Mr. Clarke made me 
a welcome visitor to his home and gave me access to his library. He 
allowed me to take as many books as I chose and carry them to my 
lodgings. I there lived two years and six months, devoting my time 
to reading. I completed a course in ancient and modern history. My 
exercise was hard labor and walking. I tended a garden one summer 
upon shares, and my net profits were about twelve dollars. I obtained 
the use of a small piece of land and planted it with potatoes from which 
my profits were thirty dollars. I was treated with great kindness by the 
family with whom I lived, and endeavored to be always on the pleasant 
side with them, and to be sure not to be wanting in attention to my 



i82 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

landlady. Here I learned that the little nameless civilities and attentions 
were worth a great deal more than they cost. The inhabitants of this 
county were all attached to the British Government and believed that 
all the officers paroled there were rebels, and that they would finally be 
hung for their rebellion. So if any of us met with any abuse or injury 
from the inhabitants we had no redress, but must bear it patiently. But 
notwithstanding I was thus secluded from my friends, I felt no dispo- 
sition to repine. Every day afforded me its enjoyments, excepting a 
time when I had a pretty severe attack of ague and fever, which reduced 
me low. 

The whole term of my captivity was three years and three months, 
lacking one day. I was exchanged the 3d of January, 1781. I was taken 
from Flatbush to New York, and from there to Elizabeth, in New 
Jersey, and set at liberty. I then procured assistance to carry me and 
my baggage to Peekskill. I there left my chest and marched on to the 
Highlands to the army, which had taken winter quarters in the woods. 
I found in the regiment to which I belonged that my rank as an officer 
had been remembered and noticed. I was appointed captain in 1778. I 
took the command of my company and directed four men to procure a 
boat and take me down the river to Peekskill, for the purpose of taking 
my chest of clothing. The river was open in the channel, but frozen 
near the banks. I landed at Peekskill in the evening, it being very dark. 
The waters were deep near the shore and covered with ice, and by 
making a misstep near the shore where the ice had been cut away for the 
boat to enter, I fell into the river and could find no bottom. I seized 
the edge of the ice while my body by the rapidity of the current was 
carried horizontally up against the under side of the ice and I held on, 
calling for help, till the men came to my assistance. A few seconds 
more of suspense would have landed me in eternity. I got the chest 
into the boat, after changing my wet clothing, and toward morning, 
taking advantage of the tide, my men rowed the boat up the river and 
I returned to my regiment the following day. 

I soon after obtained a furlough of two months to return to my 
parents in Litchfield. During this time I visited Philadelphia and amply 
repaid the kind family who had befriended me for my board during the 
winter of 1777-78. When my furlough ended, in March, 1781, I joined 
the army and was immediately detached from my regiment to take com- 
mand of a company of light infantry drawn from the several regiments 
in the Connecticut line of the army. My company was kept completely 
full of men during the summer of 1781. H any was sick or died re- 
turns were made and another man was sent to fill the place. In the 
forepart of the campaign of 1781 the army was stationed near White 
Plains. Several companies had skirmishes with the enemy near Kings- 
bridge. Numbers were killed on both sides. I was personally in several 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD 183 

severe actions, of which the light infantry must always be in front. I 
experienced many narrow escapes, but still I was preserved. Not a bone 
fractured, not even a flesh wound while others fell by my side. 

Near the close of the month of August our regiment, commanded by 
Colonel Scammel, received orders to march to Virginia. I marched with 
the regiment, at the head of my company, to the head of Chesapeake Bay, 
about two hundred miles. We sailed down the bay and landed at Wil- 
liamsburg. Here General Washington, with his army, encamped a few 
days. He then ordered his army to move to Yorktown, about thirteen 
miles. The march was performed in one day, about the middle of 
October. On the i6th day, at evening, the light infantry was ordered 
to take a fort by storm, which was situated near the mouth of the 
York River. Accordingly, as soon as twilight was gone, we began our 
march. I had command of the first company at the head of the column 
which supported the forlorn hope. Not a man was killed in the forlorn 
hope. They were so near the enemy before they were discovered that 
the enemy overshot them and their whole force, to the main body. 
There were eight men killed near the head of the column, and all within 
thirty feet of where I stood, and about fifty men were wounded. Yet 
by a kind Providence, I was mercifully preserved. The forlorn hope, 
commanded by Colonel Alexander Hamilton, were successful in taking 
the fort. Our men then covered themselves by an entrenchment a mile 
and a half long, in less than an hour. The French army made an 
attack on a fort on our left, at the same time that we made an attack 
on the fort on the bank of York River. The French lost about two 
hundred men. When we had gotten possession of these forts, we had 
possession of the ground overlooking Yorktown. 

The British were cooped up in an elbow of the river. When morn- 
ing light appeared the enemy found their condition hopeless. Our ar- 
tillery began their play upon the town. The enemy, panicstruck, beat 
a parley. On the 17th day a flag was sent out requesting a cessation 
of hostilities for 24 hours. General Washington replied that he would 
grant them two hours only. The moment the two hours expired the 
whole artillery of our army and that of the French also discharged upon 
Yorktown. It was a most tremendous roaring. Before another dis- 
charge could be made the British beat a parley and sent another flag 
requesting that commissioners might be appointed to agree upon articles 
of capitulation for a surrender. Accordingly, commissioners were ap- 
pointed and articles agreed upon. 

On the i8th day, a day of respite, our soldiers were ordered to wash 
and appear clean next day. The British were snug in their tents during 
this time. On the 19th day our whole army and the French army 
assembled, our army on the right, and the French army on the left, 
about six miles apart, and each line reaching more than a mile on an 



i84 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

extended plain. We were thus drawn up to review the vanquished. The 
British army marched out between our two armies, drums beating their 
own tunes, colors muffled, and after they passed in review of our army 
they piled their arms on the field of submission and returned back in 
the same manner into Yorktown. 

On the 20th day, according to custom, would be the day of pagan 
rejoicing and huzzas, but instead of this General Washington issued his 
orders of a general pardon for all culprits of the army, those that were 
confined for crimes and those that were under sentence of a court mar- 
tial. He ordered the army to assemble for divine service and give thanks 
to God for the success of our army, chaplains to do their duty praying 
and preaching to their several brigades discourses suitable to the occa- 
sion. How far preferable was this to a people professing to be Christians 
to the heathenish custom of a pow-wow and exulting over the humble 
vanquished. Here General Washington's character shone with true lustre 
in giving God the glory. 

Our Army, after taking care of the military stores which fell into 
our hands, were ordered to join our respective regiments. I marched 
with my men from Yorktown in Virginia to the highlands on the east 
side of the Hudson in New York, in the month of November, 1781. 
Through all the dangers of this fatiguing campaign I enjoyed remark- 
able health and was able to endure its hardships with cheerfulness and 
activity. In December I obtained a furlough for a few weeks to visit 
my friends in Litchfield. My parents received me with joy. While I 
was absent on this furlough I was married. I returned to the Army 
and continued with it during the campaign of the summer of 1782. The 
Army this summer were basking at their ease and were encamped near 
King's Ferry, a little below Peekskill. There was no fighting after 
Cornwallis and his army were captured at Yorktown. 

In the month of November, 1782, I was released from the Army. I 
returned to my parents to comfort their declining years and to enjoy 
the sweets of domestic life. At this time I was thirty years of age. I 
felt a desire to resume my studies in theology and pondered on the 
subject. My father had become infirm from a wound he had received 
from an axe, and consequent loss of blood. My mother was seventy 
years old, and sunk down in her dotage. My parents were both un- 
willing that I should leave them, and I myself was still doubting and 
fearing my heart was not right with God. I lived with my parents dur- 
ing the winter of 1782-3 and endeavored to comfort them by attending 
to their domestic concerns and relieving my father from the necessary 
cares of a cold winter. My friends and neighbors united in saying 
that I must live in South Farms and be their justice of the peace, and 
accordingly in May, 1783, I was appointed justice of the peace and was 
chosen by the people of this town as selectman. Thus situated, and not- 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD 185 

withstanding my heart had from early youth devised the way to be a 
minister of the Gospel, yet God designed it should not be so, but had 
otherwise directed my steps. 

In the month of May, 1783, I moved my wife from Middletown and 
set up housekeeping in the same house my father built for me when 
I was nine years old and to which I had in my childhood so great an 
aversion. I repaired the house and barn. I employed two hired men in 
the summer of 1783 in order to' repair fences, clear up hedgerows, and, 
as the saying is, I slicked up the farm. In my office of Justice of the 
Peace I was often called on to do business. Courts were often held. 
Sometimes large numbers of people would attend, and when I set up 
housekeeping we often had company to visit us. My parents being 
advanced in years and in the evening of life, they chose retirement. My 
mother, especially, could not be broken of her rest and we often had 
evening visitors. They would stay till after nine o'clock and some 
noise would be made either in conversation or when they bid us good 
night. In the morning my mother would complain that she was so dis- 
turbed that she did not sleep, and that she could not have it so; that I 
should send off my company before nine o'clock. 

Finding my situation growing unpleasant, yet at the same time feeling 
disposed to do everything in my power to smooth the pillow of age 
and to render the condition of my beloved parents comfortable, I con- 
sulted my father on the subject, and told him that I had it in con- 
templation to purchase the house and land where I now live. That it 
was more central for my business and that it was nearer to Litchfield 
town, where I was often called to transact business. My father gave his 
consent that I should purchase the house and land, at the same time 
informing me that if I purchased this place I must pay for it myself, 
as he had no loose money to spare. The burden of taxes bore hard 
upon the middle class of farmers to defray the expenses of the war. 
My father had already given me a deed of one-half of his house and 
fifty acres of land from his farm. My father therefore informed me 
that if I ran in debt I must go with my eyes open and not depend on 
him for help. 

It seemed that everything respecting my purchase was directed by a 
kind providence. I had no money, but I had in my possession four 
hundred pounds nominally of State obligations which were depreciating 
every day from their nominal value. They were granted to me for my 
services in the war, on account of the depreciation of Continental money. 
This place was mortgaged to Dr. Bird for £130. Mr. David Leavitt had 
an attachment on it for ;£i6o. I had made a bargain for the purchase of 
this house and lands for the sum of £475 lawful money. The day was 
appointed when the creditors were to meet to see if any compromise 
could be made. Dr. Bird agreed to take my State obHgations at fifteen 



i86 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

shillings on the pound. Mr. Leavitt agreed in like manner, so I paid the 
whole sum down on the day that I took the deed. 

This bargain was made in the month of December, 1784. In the month 
of January, 1785, I was industriously providing for myself a good wood- 
pile for the use of the house, besides attending to the concerns of my 
father, my family being then in his house. I was elated with the idea 
that in the spring I should set up housekeeping in my present house, 
and that I should glide along smoothly without being in any degree 
burdensome to my beloved and aged parents. But God did not design 
that I should have altogether so smooth a passage. At the latter end 
of February God was pleased to cast me on a bed of severe sickness 
with the bilious colic. 

I underwent the most distressing pain. I was confined thirty days and 
my life was despaired of. I then had two children, my wife expecting 
to be left in widowhood, my father often praying with and for me. My 
friends and neighbors lent their friendly aid for our assistance. I have 
contemplated that this afflictive sickness was designed by my Maker to 
answer some of His purposes in this place. By this sickness and dis- 
tress the door was open for the people to show me kindness, and by 
means of the favors they bestowed they became more friendly to me. 
Hence the way was opened for what God had designed I should do for 
this people, as a feeble instrument in His hand. 

About the year 1780 South Farms had become a stench in the nostrils 
of all good men. Profane swearing, Sabbath-breaking and drunkenness 
were not uncommon among professors of religion. The young people 
were clownish, ignorant and uncivil. My first effort was to attract the 
attention of the "children in the three schools then existing. In the 
years 1783 and 1784 they were taught by active and ambitious teachers 
with whom I soon became acquainted. It was agreed that at the close 
of the schools in the spring the several instructors, with their children, 
should meet at the old meeting-house, and that the eight scholars in 
each school who performed the best in a public examination should have 
a book. I procured two dozen of Webster's new spelling book, the first 
that were introduced into this society, and presented them to the 
scholars as proposed. This apparently excited a spirit of emulation in 
the several schools. From this time forward I endeavored to make 
myself acquainted with all the children, occasionally visiting the schools. 
I exerted myself that each school should be furnished with able teachers 
— persons of taste and principle — and I found there was a promising 
class of yovith coming forward. 

At this juncture, when I thought things in the parish were beginning 
to wear a pleasant aspect, the news spread that the officers of the army 
had a commutation of five years' pay for service during the Revolutionary 
War. This fired the minds of the community. I became obnoxious to 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD 187 

the mass of people in the society because I was an officer of the num- 
ber. When I had any severe sickness, members of the old stock of 
men hoped I should die. One noisy old man, towards eighty years old, 
said at a public house before company, that he hoped I should die and 
that they would take my skin for a drumhead to drum other officers out 
of town. One of my old soldiers, who was in the company, drew his 
bayonet and told the old man that he had a mind to plunge it into his 
heart. That he hoped I should get well, and live to eat the geese that 
fattened on the old man's grave. 

In the month of April, 1785, I removed with my family to my present 
dwelling, and soon after I was appointed by the society as one of their 
committee, which office I held for eight successive years. This embraced 
the time of building the meeting-house and settling Mr. Chase. In the 
year 1787 I purchased of Mr. Benjamin Hall his farm of no acres for 
430 pounds lawful money, paying one-fourth in money and the remainder 
in five annual instalments in neat cattle, at the appraisal of men. I 
then purchased all the calves I could obtain, hoping they would grow 
into cattle of worth by the time my payments became due. 

In June, 1789, God was pleased to remove my dear father by death. 
A considerable sum in money and cattle was placed in my hands by 
which I was enabled to free myself from debt without any embarrass- 
ment. Thus I was prospered in my worldly concerns, though the loss 
of my father was a grievous stroke. I was at this time thirty-eight years 
old. During my early life I had adopted a variety of maxims. They 
were such as these: Never to be wanting in integrity; never to suffer 
my passion to gain ascendancy over me ; never to contend with persons 
in things unessential ; adopt an independent mode of thinking ; always be 
firm in principle, but smooth in manner; never to promise more than I 
can perform; avoid detraction of others; always endeavor to honor and 
please the aged. These, and many other maxims, I had noted down in 
my commonplace book during my college and military life. But I 
found them to be only cobwebs; they did not satisfy my mind. As to 
my head, I was a Christian, while my heart was estranged from holiness. 
After the strictest sect of the world's morality I lived a Pharisee. It 
pleased God to awaken me. My father dated his conversion from the 
general outpouring in 1740-41, before he was twenty years old. My 
mind was anxiously impressed with the idea that presently I should be 
forty years old, and if I sinned away the day of grace till after that 
period, my crime would be sealed in the book of God against me. I 
had nowhere to go but to my Saviour, and I hope I was plucked as a 
brand from the burning. O my dear children, if ever this little scrap 
should fall into your hands, think how perilous it is to live without God 
in the world so long as your father has done. 



l88 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

On the 7th of November, 1790, it being Lord's day — I made a public 
profession of religion, and joined the church in this place. About 
this time, the children to whom I had presented books in 1783-4 began 
to look to me for further instruction. They were fond of calling on 
me at my house, and I gave them access to my library. I informed 
them that I would give them instruction in grammar and geography 
if they would attend to it, and I gave them the best advice I could as 
to what line of conduct it was best for them to pursue. I took more 
pains with the young ladies in the outsetting than I did with the others, 
for experience had taught me in my travels that in every town or 
village where there was a chaste and virtuous set of young ladies there 
was a decent class of young men. Hence I concluded that a reforma- 
tion in society must begin with the females. It was now a new thing 
for ladies to have any more education than could be obtained in the 
common schools — reading, writing and spelling were all the branches 
that were taught — and it was often said that girls need not learn to 
write. If they could write their own names it was sufficient. Girls did 
not commonly attend to schooling after they were 10 or 12 years of age. 

The mode of instruction I employed with the young people met with 
opposition. It was said I was making an innovation on the manners and 
customs of youth. I was blowing up their pride. They would feel above 
their mates and above laborers. A stop must be put to it. This spirit 
of opposition commenced in the year 1792. On the 13th of January, 
1793, I was appointed to the office of deacon in this church. The oppo- 
sition to me was increasing. It had found a place in the breasts of two 
of my brethren in the church. I hesitated whether I should take on 
myself so important an office. I knew myself to be constitutionally 
independent and cheerful, and I was fearful lest my deportment would 
not promote the interests of the church. But after consulting with 
my friends, who were the most substantial members in the church, and 
taking the subject into prayerful consideration, I accepted the office, I 
hoped with meekness and fear. The opposition to my school increased 
till the year 1794. A certain class of men who were envious because 
I was appointed Justice of the Peace at the age of 30 and deacon at the 
age of 40, now boiled over. 

Religion was made the shouting horn. I was disturbing the peace of the 
church. I was too familiar with the ladies in my school. I had even 
been seen walking with them to their respective homes. I was bringing 
in fashions repugnant to the interests of society. This clamor excited 
the jealousy and suspicion of sundry brethren in the church. A church 
meeting was held in the month of July, 1794, and a committee of inquiry 
was appointed to look into the reports circulating respecting me, and 
bring a complaint against me, if they found cause. This committee 
brought forward a complaint charging me with lascivious carriage. One 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD 189 

of the brethren in the church, being apprehensive that the charge against 
me was too high and could not be proved, charged me with a violation 
of the Christian peace, and enumerated sundry items of my conduct to 
that effect. It was unanimously agreed to refer both complaints against 
me to a mutual comicil. Accordingly, the churches of Southbury, Wood- 
bury, Bethlehem, Judea and Warren were sent to for their minister and 
delegate, and on the 27th day of August, 1794, I had a public hearing. 
It excited the attention of the whole society and the neighboring towns. 
A great collection of people assembled, as the hue and cry was to see 
the villain fall. 

Both complaints were read before the council in the forenoon. After 
a short statement the council adjourned for dinner, then met again soon 
after noon. Twenty-six witnesses appeared against me, and testified about 
every minute action that they had discovered in my walk for two years 
and a half preceding. I viewed this trial as a chastisement in the 
providence of God to prepare me for what he would have me to do. 
Some of the witnesses, who were opposed to my school, testified to 
what they knew was not true, and confessed the same to me a year after- 
ward, excusing themselves by saying that they testified without being 
under oath. 

After a long hearing of the witnesses, the council took the matter into 
mature deliberation, and on the twenty-eighth of August reported " That 
the complaint brought against me by the church was by no means sup- 
ported. But that on the other complaint of disturbing the Christian 
peace, they were constrained to say that I had been a little imprudent. 
But they advised the church to receive me into the arms of their 
charity." The church was asked whether it would abide the decision of 
the council, and voted in the affirmative. The question was then put to 
me, and I said I would acquiesce. My persecutors were exceedingly 
appalled. Some of them soon after moved out of the Society, some 
were taken away by the immediate hand of God, and one of the brethren 
who was violently opposed to me joined the Episcopalians and was 
finally excommunicated. 

All this persecution turned out to my advantage. My school had 
hitherto been confined mostly to the youth of this society, but in the 
fall of 1794 it was thronged with young people from other towns, and 
from this time to 1803 I had as many pupils as I could attend to, sum- 
mer and winter. It was now the general remark that there was as 
promising a class of young people in South Farms as in any town in 
the country and they were generally sought for as instructors in the 
district schools. 

In the year 1803, sundry good people in this society united and built 
a large schoolhouse with the design of embodying my school, and called 
it the Academy. The building was completed in the month of Novem- 



I90 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

ber, 1803. I then procured an assistant and extended the branches of 
science to be taught. Most of the classics that were attended to at our 
colleges were taught in this academy. More than sixty scholars have 
entered college from this school, and more than 1,500 have been members 
of it. Scholars have been here for instruction from all the New England 
States except Rhode Island, from the States of New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia, also from 
the island of St. Thomas in the West Indies and from Bermuda. 

Soon after I began to teach my school in 1790, I began a course of 
lectures on morals which were delivered weekly, giving audience to any 
persons who chose to attend. This I continued for the course of twenty 
years, which I hope have been useful and instructive to many youth 
who have been committed to my care. Thus God in His providence has 
directed me to spend my life in the place of my nativity. If I have 
ever done any good to my fellowmen, let the praise be to Him who 
hath directed my steps. I have held an office of one kind or another 
in the gift of the town, for thirty-one years. Twenty-nine years I have 
held an office in the gift of the society. Thirty years I have held an 
office in the gift of the State. 

In the year 1798 I was chosen representative from this town to the 
General Assembly and continued to represent the town for the greater 
part of the time till 1806. I then declined the election. I have had my 
share of worldly honors. I have had my share of happiness in domestic 
life. I have been blessed with obedient and affectionate children. I 
have had a numerous circle of friends and acquaintances and have 
shared largely in the affections of my pupils. I have many times been 
ready to exclaim. Why have I been made the subject of so much good- 
ness from the hand of God? In all the relative duties which I have 
been called to discharge I have had much occasion to exclaim, Oh ! my 
leanness, my barrenness in the offerings I owe to God and my fellow- 
men. After giving myself to God in covenant vows and dedicating my 
children in baptism I formed many resolutions, namely : 

Resolved, Not to be a stumbling block to any by my example. 

Resolved, When I am about to enter upon any important undertaking, 
to ask divine direction in prayer. 

Resolved, Not to fail daily to pray in secret. 

Resolved, To impart religious instruction to my children and commend 
them daily to God in prayer. 

Resolved, To exercise candor and charity toward all. 

Resolved, Not to be so tenacious of my principle as not to throw my- 
self open to conviction by reason founded on the Scriptures. 

Resolved, To be submissive in all afflictions. 

Resolved, Never to court temptation. 



JAMES MORRIS, JR., RECORD 191 

Resolved, Ever to pray that my faith may be strengthened. 

Resolved, To keep a daily watch and guard over my heart. 

Resolved, To live daily in the exercise of true repentance and godly 
sorrow for sin. 

Resolved, Never to live in the indulgence of any known sin. 

Upon reflection, it ill becomes me to resolve what I will do — O God, 
enable me to avoid temptation, and may I trust in Thee to uphold me 
in all my walks ! 

The first day of September, 1814, my wife, Elizabeth, had a paralytic 
shock which rendered insensible the one-half of her whole body from 
her head to her feet. She continued helpless as an infant till the Qth 
day of said September about half after ten in the forenoon, when she 
expired, aged sixty-three. Her funeral was attended by a large con- 
course of people on the loth day of said September. Rev. Mr. Lyman 
Beecher preached a sermon on the occasion from Job xiv. 14 : " All the 
days of my appointed time will I wait till my change come." My heart 
overflows with gratitude to my kind friends and neighbors for their 
kind attention to her in her distressed and helpless illness, and for 
their very respectful kindness in performing the last mournful offices 
in committing her remains to the silent mansions of the grave. 

On the 6th day of March, 1815, I married my second wife, Rhoda 
Farnum, a lady possessing all the qualities necessary to make domestic 
life happy in the conjugal state. On the 30th day of January, 1816, she 
brought me a fine daughter, whom we named Jane Elizabeth — a dear 
babe and a precious gift from heaven. Oh, may we have grace and 
divine aid to bring her up in the fear of God! When I behold her 
verging into life I am ready to exclaim with the pious poet : 

Thou embryo angel, or thou infant fiend, 

A being now begun, but ne'er to end. 

What boding fears a father's heart torment. 

Trembling and anxious for the grand event. 

Lest thy young soul, so late by Heaven bestowed, 

Forget her father and neglect her God. 

Lest while imprisoned in this house of clay 

To tyrant lust she fall a helpless prey. 

Maker of souls, avert so dire a doom. 

Or snatch her back to native nothing's gloom! 

On the Lord's Day, April 21, 1816, we dedicated our infant to God in 
baptism. O, may she be early adopted into the family of the Redeemer. 
On the 22d day of November, 1817, my dear companion presented me 
with a son whom we named Timothy Dwight, in grateful remembrance 



192 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

of my much esteemed and beloved friend, Rev. Timothy Dwight, late 
president of Yale College, who was the tutor of my class in college in 
the years 1771-1773. On the 3d day of May, 1818, we dedicated our son 
to God in the ordinance of baptism, hoping by the grace of God to train 
him up for the dear Redeemer, and that the child may be useful in life, 
prepared for death, and finally be made a trophy of divine grace in the 
Kingdom of Heaven. 

Here the account ends: but Mrs. Whiton adds the following: 
My father left his home Monday, April 17, 1820, to attend the foreign 
missionary school at Cornwall, and was taken ill about ten o'clock that 
evening. Being anxious to reach his dwelling before his spirit took its 
flight, he left Cornwall Wednesday, and rode six miles to Deacon Thomp- 
son's in Goshen, where he died about eight o'clock Thursday morning, 
April 20, 1820, aged sixty-eight years and three months. His remains 
were interred on Friday. Mr. Harvey of Goshen preached a funeral 
sermon from the sixth chapter of Hebrews, twelfth verse. The epitaph 
on his tombstone reads thus : 

Forgive, blest shade, the tributary tear 
That mourns thy exit from a world like this. 
Forgive the wish that would have kept thee here 
And stay'd thy progress to the seats of bliss. 
No more confined to groveling scenes of night. 
No more a tenant pent in mortal clay. 
Now should we rather hail thy glorious flight, 
And trace thy journey to the realms of day. 

Some years ago the name of "Litchfield South Farms " was changed 
to " Morris," and thus the township becomes James Morris's permanent 
memorial.

Maj. Gen. Morris Woodruff, eldest son of James and Lucy (Morris) 
Woodruff, born in Litchfield, September 3, \^^^, educated at Morris 
Academy and bred a merchant. He commenced mercantile life with 
Messrs. David Leavitt and Simeon Harrison and after his connection 
with them was dissolved he prosecuted the business chiefly on his own 
account for many years. He was through life much employed as ex- 
ecutor, administrator, and commissioner in settling estates and as arbi- 
trator, auditor, and committee appointed by the courts. He was an 
active and influential member of the church and ecclesiastical society and 
of the community generally to which he belonged; repeatedly discharged 
the duties of various public offices ; represented the town of Litchfield 
in the Legislature fourteen sessions, and was magistrate of the county 
26 years. In 1818 he was appointed Brig. Gen. of the 6th Brigade. 

In 1824 the Legislature appointed him Maj. Gen. of the 3rd division. 
From 1829 till his death, a period of 11 years, he held the ofiice of a 
Judge of the County Court and of Commissioner which succeeded it, 
and in November, 1832, he was chosen by the voters of the State at 
large an elector of President and Vice President of the United States. 
In all the affairs of life Gen. Woodruff was distinguished by great 
activity, energy, perseverance, accuracy and fidelity to whatever trust 
he assumed. Of high integrity himself, he was stern in requiring from 
others observance of its dictates. Ready to do justice to others, keenly 
alive to every sense of wrong, penetrating in his scrutiny into the con- 
duct and motives of others, convincing rather than persuasive in his 
intercourse with men, he impelled their concurrence in his views by 
producing confidence in the soundness of his judgment and the correct- 
ness of his purposes. He was steadfast in his friendships and few men 
retain with equal warmth the intimacies begun in early years. The asso- 
ciates of his boyhood were through life his most confiding and devoted 
friends. The dependence of his neighbors and friends on him for advice 
and assistance was very great, and their confidence was never abused, 
their reliance never failed, and so his means of usefulness among them 
were large and his influence extensive. In his domestic relations he 
was affectionate and kind, inflexible in retaining a high standard of 
both filial and parental duty, and he never failed to show that the highest 
good of those who were dependent upon him was his invariable motive 
in all his intercourse with them. Gen. Woodruff was nearly six feet

in height, stout, erect, active and of more than ordinary physical 
strength, of robust and vigorous frame and sound constitution, but a 
severe iUness resuUed in his death at his home in Litchfield on the 
17th of May, 1840, illustrating in his dying hour the peace and consola- 
tion of the Christian's hope and confidence in the Saviour in whose 
church on earth he had been numbered for many years. His remains 
were interred in East Burying Ground, where a handsome monument 
has been erected to his memory. Gen. Woodruff married, November 21, 
1804, Candace Catlin, eldest daughter of Lewis Catlin, Esq., of Harwinton, 
Conn. She was born April 2, 1786, and died at Litchfield July 22, 1871.

Hon. George Catlin Woodruff, of Litchfield, Conn., eldest son of Gen. 
Morris Woodruff and Candace Catlin, born South Farms, December i, 
1805, fitted for college in the then famous Morris Academy and entering 
Yale in 1821, graduated among the foremost scholars of his class. He 
studied his profession under Judge Gould of the Litchfield Law School 
and decided to practice his profession in Litchfield. He was admitted 
to the Bar in 1827 and early took a leading position, rising till he became 
the acknowledged head of the Litchfield County Bar. Early sought out 
by his fellow citizens for offices of public trust — justice of the peace, 
grand juror, postmaster, town treasurer, town clerk, director and presi- 
dent of banks. Clerk of the Superior Court, Colonel in the Militia, mem- 
ber and Clerk of the General Assembly, Judge of Probate and member 
of Congress — he performed the duties of each with rigid exactness and 
scrupulous integrity. As a lawyer he was prominent in those branches 
where certainty is possible. It was in the trial of questions of law, the 
drier and more abstruse the better, that his most consummate skill 
was shown. In his personal character he was the embodiment of the 
best elements of Puritanism. In his intercourse with his fellow men 
he was quiet, unobtrusive, reserved ; he was of that honesty that loathes 
dishonesty, of that truth that hates a lie, of that manliness that despises 
a sham. In early life he married a sister of the late Chief Justice 
Seymour and Judge Seymour married the only sister of Mr. Woodruff. 
Side by side they lived and practiced their profession. Mr. Woodruff 
died at Litchfield on the 21st of November, 1885. As citizen, as neigh- 
bor, in private life or public station, as counsellor or judge, he was one 
of the best products of our American civilization.

Hon. Lewis Bartholomew Woodruff, LL.D., second son of Gen. 
Morris Woodruff and Candace Catlin, born June 19, 1809. Graduated at 
Yale College with high honors in 1830, received his legal education at 
the then famous Litchfield Law School, removed in fall of 1832 to New 
York City, where he practiced his profession of the law until 1850, when 
he began his distinguished judicial career, and held successively the 
offices of Judge of the New York Court of Common Pleas, Judge of the 
New York Superior Court, Judge of the State Court of Appeals, and 
Judge of the United States Circuit Court for the States of New York, 
Connecticut and Vermont, which position he filled at the time of his 
death, September 10, 1875. In i860, Columbia College conferred upon 
him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. 

His great learning, his remarkable power of analysis and his deep 
discernment and excellent judgment, made him invaluable and most 
highly esteemed as a Counselor, while these qualities of mind, reinforced 
by habits of profound study and indefatigable industry insured his high 
reputation on the Bench during his whole judicial career. Of fine pres- 
ence, dignified in his bearing, and exacting the respect which was his 
due, he was in the family circle tender and affectionate, everywhere gen- 
erous, kind and helpful. Genial and cordial, his loving welcome, hos- 
pitable board and ever-open door kept warm hearts constantly about him, 
and he died esteemed, revered and beloved as few men are. He married, 
November 4, 1835, Harriette Burnet Hornblower, of Newark, N. J., daugh-

Benjamin Smith, Jr., son of Benjamin Smith and Lydia Gates, born 
April 17, 1783, died 1810. He went on board his ship, having bidden his 
family good-bye and expecting to sail immediately. The ship, how- 
ever, did not sail as expected, and the first mate, Benj. Smith, found 
he would have time to see his family once more before leaving the port, 
so he hastened home and surprised them. When they said good-bye 
the second time, they saw him for the last time. The ship sailed from 
New Haven with a cargo composed in part of horses. On the voyage 
a severe storm was encountered and horses were thrown overboard to 
lighten the ship. It was during this storm that Benj. Smith was washed 
overboard. The ship continued on her way with the remainder of the 
cargo. This was on January 20, 1810, when the only child of Benj.

258 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

3024 
THE BEECHER RECORD 

The Beechers of this country are descended chiefly from one emi- 
grant ancestor. The English Beechers were landholders in Speldhurst, 
County of Kent, England. One of the family, John (3024) by name, 
with his wife, Hannah, and their son Isaac (3025), came to America 
with Pastor Davenport and his church colony, arriving at Boston, June 
26, 1637, in two vessels. Some time in September, one of the vessels 
sailed on a voyage of exploration to find a location outside of all the 
other colonies and outside of all English jurisdiction. Quenappeac, now 
New Haven (or the New Harbour) was selected and the whole colony, 
numbering about 130 persons, removed to their New Haven home in 
March, 1638. Seven men of the niunber who sailed with the exploring 
expedition in September, mentioned previously, remained during the win- 
ter to prepare dwellings for the colony on their arrival, one of whom 
was (3024) John Beecher (our ancestor). He died on account of ex- 
posure and was the first white man buried there. He left a widow, 
Hannah Beecher, and one son (3025) Isaac (2d gen.), then about fourteen 
years old. He married and had children, five of them being sons, all 
of whose names are known. One named (3026) Joseph (3d gen., our 
ancestor) married (second wife) a Miss Pomeroy, by whom he had 
seven children. (3027) Nathaniel (4th gen., our ancestor) married Miss 
Sarah Sperry, lived at New Haven ; was a blacksmith by occupation. 
Was noted for his height — six feet — and for his great physical powers, 
being able, as the tradition of his time tells it, " to lift a barrel of cider 
and drink out of the bung-hole." He had nine children, all of whom 
were members of the church of New Haven. He died at New Haven, 
was buried in the Old Cemetery, and at that time the only, burial ground 
on the "upper green." The head-stone now stands in the Grove Street 
burial ground. 

3028 
David Beecher (5th gen., our ancestor), who married Lydia Morris 
(2998), was the son of Nathaniel Beecher (3027) and Sarah Sperry. 
He was born at New Haven in 1738; was short of stature, measuring 
only five feet, seven and one-half inches. His occupation was the same 
as that of his father. He inherited his father's great strength. He was 
married five times. His first wife was Mary Hoadley, of New Haven, 
who died January 5, 1770, aged thirty years. His second wife was (2998) 
Lydia Morris, of Morris Point, East Haven, Conn. By his third wife, 
Esther Hawley Lyman, he had one son, the celebrated Lyman Beecher, 
born 1775, died 1863.

JOHN LYMAN BEECHER 
John Lyman Beecher, son of Charles Morris Beecher and his first 
wife, Sarah Sage, was born in New Marlborough, Mass., May 6, 1828, 
married Huldah Maria Ailing, of Norfolk, Conn., October 14, 1855, at 
East Granville. She was born on December 17, 1827. He went to 
California in 1855 and bought 640 acres of land, near Stockton, to 
which he afterwards added 320 acres more. He owned a beautiful home 
in Stockton, where they lived for more than twenty years. The children 
were educated and spent their vacations there. Mr. Beecher was presi- 
dent of a grain corporation for many years, but his business increased 
till it became too great a burden and his health failing, he resigned; 
sold the city home and went back to the ranch, six miles from the 
city. Obituary notice of his death: 

"John L. Beecher, Sr., died January 12, 1899, at three o'clock at 
his residence, east of Stockton, where he had been confined to his bed 
for the past four weeks. The deceased was perhaps better known in 
this county than any of the old residents. He was born in Massachu- 
setts seventy years ago and was one of the earliest settlers of this 
country. He was the owner of large tracts of land in this as well as 
Merced and Stanislaus counties and was a leading spirit in many enter- 
prises in which farmers of this county were interested. Mr. Beecher 
leaves a family consisting of Mrs. Beecher, John L, Jr., Elliott S. and 
Charles Beecher, and Mrs. Walter F. Sibley. He had been troubled 
on account of his heart for the past three or four years and had not been 
strong during any of that time. The funeral was held from the residence 
on Saturday afternoon at 11 o'clock and the remains were brought to 
Stockton by way of the Linden road for interment at Rural Cemetery."

OBITUARY 

"William Groesbeeck died at his home on Maple Avenue, Sunday 
evening at half past seven o'clock. His death followed an illness of 
several weeks and was a general giving away of the system from the 
feebleness of old age. William Groesbeeck was born at Little Falls, 
N. Y., February 2, 1818, and was therefore eighty-three years old. He 
was reared in New York and for a time was engaged in mercantile 
pursuits. His fine instinct for business took him to Texas while still 
a young man, and here he met with great success and became one of the 
leading business men of Texas. He owned a fine home, and was con- 
sidered a wealthy man. He lived in the South until after the Civil War, 
when he came to Sedalia, Mo., and lived there for several years, being 
called to Independence about 1875 to take charge of the Presbyterian 
College. He was president of this institution for two years and re- 
mained after, a citizen of Independence, engaging in the mercantile 
business with J. S. Mott; afterwards with A. J. Bundschu, helping in 
the business which has now become the largest in Independence and is 
still conducted by Mr. Bundschu. He was appointed postmaster by 
President Cleveland, during his first administration, and served here for 
four years, giving the city of Independence a business administration and 
making a record with the department at Washington which few post- 
masters have made. For the past several years, Mr. Groesbeeck has 
been agent for the Metropolitan Railway Company, at Independence, and 
up to the time he was eighty-three years of age, was always at his post, 
accurate and methodical, with a pleasant word of greeting for his friends 
and strict attention to every duty. In 1858, Mr. Groesbeeck was married 
to Mrs. Tyer, a sister of Judge John F. Phillips of the Federal Court, 
who still survives him. They have three living children, Miss Lizzie 
Groesbeeck, Miss Celia Groesbeeck and Fred Groesbeeck, all of whom 
were at home at the time of his death. Mr. Groesbeeck had two daugh- 
ters of a former marriage, who live in the South, Mrs. Maria Chapman, 
of Berwick, La., and Mrs. M. E. Green, of Opelika, Ala. Within the 



FULLER FAMILY 275 

past year, Mr. and Mrs. Groesbeeck spent several weeks in the South, and 
while they were there, a reunion of the family was held, at which were 
present four generations, Mr. Groesbeeck, his daughter, her daughter and 
two grandchildren. A picture showing the four generations was brought 
home by Mr. Groesbeeck and greatly prized. William Groesbeeck lived 
a remarkable life and developed a character which met every hardship 
with hope, every new emergency with a smile, and every adversity with 
Christian fortitude. He was a perfect Christian gentleman in his every 
action. An omnivorous reader, his reading was well selected and thor- 
oughly assimilated until he was among the best informed of men on all 
subjects of current thought. He retained many beautiful thoughts, both 
from the best prose and poetry, in his wonderful memory, and delighted 
to quote appropriate selections to his friends. His soul was full of sun- 
shine and poetry and the pleasures of his knowledge he loved to share 
with his friends. A delightful companion always, for his mind was 
young and bright, his thoughts pure and happy. Mr. Groesbeeck was 
an optimist and met misfortune with great courage. He surveyed the 
mistakes which resulted in loss and put them behind him as things of the 
past, turning resolutely to the future with a firm belief that the right 
would prevail and that all things were ordered for the best. His religion 
was a simple, sincere belief and there was nothing terrible in his God. 
He was to him a God of love and tender care for those who trusted in 
Him. William Groesbeeck was a good citizen, a devoted husband, a 
loving father and a Christian gentleman." 

The following is an extract from a letter written to Mrs. L. A. Car- 
hart, December 22, 1899: 

" As you are only recording the descendants of the Morris-Fuller side,, 
it is unnecessary to detail my second marriage. I will be eighty-two 
on the second of February next, and am still engaged in active business, 
enjoy good health and pleasant family surroundings. In my boyhood 
days, Syracuse and Onondaga Hollow were attractive spots for me to 
visit. My two uncles on my mother's side, William H. Alexander and 
Willet Raynor, lived in Syracuse, and my grandfather, Rev. Caleb Alex- 
ander, was pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Onondaga Hollow. To 
my boyish mind, his farm was the Garden of Eden, and grandmother's 
house the ideal of hospitality and good cheer to all her grandchildren. 
The meadow and creek running through it was our playground, and all 
the surroundings of that dear old spot are still photographed on my mem- 
ory; but pardon this digression, your letter evoked the memory of days 
seventy odd years ago."

HUTCHINS LINE 287 

was a prosperous lumber merchant, a magistrate, once mayor of the city 
and official member of the M. E. Church, and for half a century was a 
prominent citizen of Marysville, Ky. His wife, Evelina, died March i, 
1S95. Her grandparents emigrated from Washington, Pa., just after the 
Revolutionary war; also her husband's parents. One of his grandfathers 
served in a Pennsylvania regiment during the Revolution, and was one 
of the augurants, also his other grandfather, Evan Shelby, who went 
from Limestone (now Maysville) to lay out Cincinnati. Mrs. Hutchins 
for seventy-six years was a constant member of the M. E. Church of 
Maysville, Ky. Her father, Evan Campbell, contributed the timber for 
the first M. E. Church in that city. She saw the first steamboat that 
came up the Ohio river. She was one of the young girls who ranged 
in line to sing a welcome to LaFayette as he entered Maysville when he 
visited the United States. Her father's land on the Ohio side of the 
river was nearly opposite that of Mayor Pelham on the Kentucky side. 
LaFayette threw his arms around Mayor Pelham when he met him on 
this occasion, glad to see again his old comrade in arms. Mrs. Hutchins' 
mind was clear to the last. Just before she died, inquiries coming from 
branches of the family in distant States, who were seeking proof of 
being enlisted to membership in the D. A. R., she recalled the history of 
her father's cousins, Isaac and Benjamin Shelby, who had laid out Shelby- 
ville, Ind. ; told of visits to her uncle Shelby's farm, for that day excep- 
tionally prosperous and improved, and brought out for the first time a 
letter yellowed by seventy years' time; this letter contained an offer of 
marriage from her second cousin, Isaac Shelby, in the ceremonious style 
of Addison's day. We have this old letter now. When asked why she 
did not marry him, she replied : " Our parents objected to cousins 
marrying." She was a practical Kentucky housekeeper, yet she read con- 
tinuously until she was greatly above the average in general knowledge 
and intelligence. Up to the last week of her life, she kept in touch 
with the social and political events of the country.

at the Northwestern University in Chicago Class of Pharmacy, 1894. 
Died at Seattle, Wash., August 10, 1899. 

" Earle Chandler Swan, after completing his studies in the High 
School, graduated from the Elgin Commercial College, then attended the 
Northwestern University College of Pharmacy, where he graduated with 
honors in Class of '94, and followed his profession in Chicago. During 
the greatest excitement of Alaskan gold mining, he became much interested 
to see that country, and in company with a friend, left Chicago with sup 
plies for two years. His happy letters eased somewhat the anxious fore- 
boding of parents and friends. Not having proved the country financially 
all he anticipated, at the expiration of fifteen months, he started on his 
homeward journey, contracted typhoid fever and died at Seattle, Wash., 
August 10, 1899. Earle was a young man of much promise, possessing 
many of the virtues that comprise noble manhood. With a high sense 
of honor, tender, manly and true, a peculiar reticence, an innate sensitive- 
ness, prevented him from sounding his own praises and only those who 
knew him best appreciated his full worth."

AMY JANE BRADLEY 

Amy Jane Bradley, daughter of Gurdon Bradley and Phebe Smith, 
born December 27, 1826, married IVillard Hodges, August 28, 1848. 
He was born in Torrington, Conn., May 25, 1820, and died July 5, 1889. 
After Mr. Hodges' marriage, he spent six months in New York, and 
moved to Rochester, N. Y., where they spent the rest of their days. 
Mr. Hodges was a public-spirited man, who occupied positions of trust 
in the community. He was elected member of Assembly from his dis- 
trict in 1876-77. 

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle of July 6, 1889, announces 
the death of Willard Hodges of that city, a native of Torrington, Conn. 
We quote its sketch of him: 

" Willard Hodges died yesterday morning at his home, corner of 
Highland and Pinnacle Avenues. The deceased was about 69 years 
of age. He entered Williams College when 16 or 17 years of age, and 
remained there until his junior year. He then went to Yale, where 
he graduated in 1845. Mr. Hodges took a very active part in public 
affairs for many years. He was a Republican in politics and repre- 
sented his assembly district in the state legislature during the winters of 
'76, '77- He also served his party and the public in other offices and 
was at one time a member of the Board of Supervisors. He was 



GURDON BRADLEY RECORD 313 

formerly president of the Monroe County Agricultural Society. Mr. 
Hodges was a pleasing speaker and writer and contributed many articles 
to the newspapers and other current literature." 

" Mrs. Jane A. Hodges died June 25, 1898, at her home on Highland 
Avenue. Mrs. Hodges was born at Fairfield, N. Y., in 1826, and was 
married at the home of her childhood, to Hon. Willard Hodges, who 
served as representative in the New York State legislature in the years 
1876 and 1877. In 1849, Mr. and Mrs. Hodges took up their residence 
near Rochester, and have since been actively connected with the ma- 
terial and spiritual development of the city. Mrs. Hodges was among 
the early members of Plymouth Congregational Church and later united 
with the Central Presbyterian Church. Anxious to do religious work 
in her own neighborhood, she urged the organization of Mt. Hor 
Presbyterian Church, of which she was a charter member and was 
chosen as the most suitable person to lay the cornerstone of the new 
church building. 

" She leaves four daughters, Mrs. W. F. Clapp, Miss Amy M. Hodges, 
Miss M. Louise Hodges and Miss Fanny L. Hodges, and a son. Rev. 
Alpheus C. Hodges. 

" For more than forty years Mrs. Hodges has been connected with the 
Sunday school in Cobb's hill school house, and has given spiritual 
instruction and help to a large circle who have since occupied positions 
of usefulness and trust. The children and poor have lost a friend."

RECORD OF AMOS MORRIS, 2ND 

Lieutenant Amos Morris, 2nd, born March 13, 1750, inherited, in an 
eminent degree, the many excellent qualities of his father, occupied the 
same ancestral acres and succeeded to the same trusts in civic life and in 
the church. He married Betsey Woodward, the second daughter of 
Richard Woodward and Susan De Luce. It may be interesting to the 
descendants of this branch of the Morris family to note that the wife 
of Amos Morris was the granddaughter of two clergymen, the one on 
her father's side and the other on her mother's side. The former was 
Rev. John Woodward, who graduated at Harvard in 1693, was ordained 
pastor in Norwich, Conn., in 1699, and assisted in compiling the Say- 
brook platform in 1708. The other was Rev. M. De Luce, ejected from 
France by persecution and brought to this country, probably soon after 
the year 1724. The following tradition, received only at second hand 
from the daughter of Rev. M. De Luce, affirms that for the crime of 
preaching the gospel, he was sentenced to death by starvation in France 
and confined in a county prison without food in execution of the sen- 
tence; but the hand of Divine Providence interposed for his rescue. A 
hen came and laid her egg daily near the prison wall, where there hap- 
pened to be a hole of sufficient size to admit of his drawing the egg 
through it, thus furnishing him a wholesome, though scanty, meal. His 
enemies were amazed at his continued life and health. Their supersti- 
tion was aroused, they felt that unseen agencies were enlisted for his 
preservation and against these it might not be safe for them to contend. 
They devised another method of securing his destruction, without put- 
ting him to a violent death. They placed him in a small open boat and 
set him adrift with the wind blowing off the shore. In this condition 
he was taken up by a vessel and brought to America. The rigors of 
the persecution that raged after the repeal of the Edict of Nantes, were 
much abated at the beginning of the i8th century, so that Protestant 
ministers ventured to gather assemblies for worship and preach the 
reformed doctrines, but in the year 1724 the dissolute Louis XV issued 



3i6 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

an edict menacing Protestant ministers with death and their abettors 
with imprisonment or the labors of galley slaves. This corresponds 
well with the time when he should have arrived in America. 

Richard Woodward, who married his daughter, was born in the year 
1 716, and died July 28, 1795. The daughter of Richard was married 
about the year 1779, and at an early age; hence it is probable he him- 
self was married late, probably after the year 1755, when he was past 
forty. This might bring the birth of his wife, Susan De Luce, about 
1730 to 173s, as soon as her father would, in the ordinary course of 
things, have acquired the English language and become established in 
the ministry in America. Tradition locates him in the Massachusetts 
Colony, place unknown. His name does not appear among the clergy 
of Boston. 

Amos Morris, 2nd, third child of Amos Morris, ist, and Lydia (Camp) 
Morris, born March 13, 1750, married Betsey Woodward, as early as the 
year 1779.

30, 1887. She was a daughter of Jonah Rutty, who died December 21, 
1819, aged seventy-seven years (son of Edward and Mary Rutty, of 
Killingworth), and Mary Huntington, who died January 18, 1854, aged 
eighty-three (daughter of Rev. Eliphalet Huntington and Sarah Elliot). 
Her first marriage was to Asa M. Bolles, Esq., who died September, 
1834, and left her with two children, David A. Bolles (Y. C. 1850), and 
Ellen, who married Oliver N. Payne (Y. C. 1852). Mr. Street grad- 
uated at Yale College, 1837, taught in Clinton Academy, 1838, studied 
theology in the Yale Divinity School, with the Class of 1841 ; was or- 
dained pastor of the Congregational Church, Jamestown, N. Y., February 
3, 1842; dismissed, January 7, 1851 ; was acting pastor for a time at 
Woodbridge, Conn., and at North Haven. Installed in Ansonia, Septem- 
ber I, 1852; dismissed. May 3, 1857. Installed in High Street Church,

his death, nearly thirty years. In 1882 he received from Yale College 
the honorary degree of S.T.D., and from Bates College that of D.D. 
He contributed articles to the New Englander, the Bibliotheca Sacra, and 
other periodicals. He was a member of the Lowell Hebrew Club, and 
shared in the preparation of a commentary on the Book of Esther. He 
was proficient in Greek, often led classes in this language, and at one 
time gave instruction in Andover Seminary, when it was without a 
Greek Professor. He was, also a zealous student of natural science, and 
awakened in his people the love of scientific research. With equal in- 
terest, he promoted philosophical studies, and was for many years the 
president of a Plato Club. He was long a member of the school board, 
and filled many positions of responsibility and trust. Few men have 
done so much for Lowell in such a variety of ways, or have been so 
universally esteemed by her people. Among his prominent works are 
the following: "Youth the Most Hopeful Season with Communities," 
National Preacher, October, 1854; "The Young Patriot," Massachusetts 
Sunday School Society, 1862, " Changes in the Physical Geography of 
Central Asia," published by the American Geographical Society, 1880, 
" Historical Discourse for the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of Andover 
Conference, 1884 " ; " Memorial of Deacon J. K. Chase, 1879 " ; " Me- 
morial of Hon. Nathan Crosby, 1885 " ; " The Rock Floor of Lowell," 
published by the old Residents Association, August, 1888; "The Dream 
and the Awakening," a posthumous volume of sermons, D. Lothrop & 
Company, 1887; a biographical sketch of Dr. and Mrs. Street, entitled 
" A Memorial of two Lives," was printed in 1887 for private distribu- 
tion, by G. S. Dickerman. The following stanzas were contributed by 
Dr. Owen Street, as a substitute for his own presence in person at the 
first family gathering in 1850: 



RECORD OF AMOS MORRIS, 2ND 325 

" Welcome the spell that enchains us here, 
This spell of two centuries weaving; 
Welcome these scenes to our hearts so dear, 
And relics of other days' leaving. 

" This home of our sires, these ancient halls. 
This well-chosen spot of their finding; 
These moss-grown ledges and old stone walls, 
This lane o'er its rocky bed winding; 

" This sloping mead by the beachy cove ; 

Yon point, with the tide round it pouring; 
That rock-bound shore, yon light-house grove 
And the briny sea with its roaring ; 

" These all have charms to entrance our eyes, 
A voice that its pure tone is lending, 
To utter afresh the names we prize. 
Their worth with their memory blending. 

" They bring to our minds the sainted dead. 
The holy memories here presiding; 
The light from their pure example shed 
Like a star hung out for our guiding. 

" For conscience sake, for the church of God, 
For truth that proved tyrants were crushing. 
Dissevered from home, these wilds they trod, 
With warm tears for that home still gushing. 

" They trod these fields, they breathed this air. 
These scenes, they, like us, were beholding 
When the wolf fiercely howled from his lair 
And sachems their councils were holding. 

" Leap then the pulse of ancestral pride, 
And loud be the note we are sounding; 
Be the God of our fathers our guide. 
Our mark, the high goal they're surrounding."

POEM COxMPOSED BY OWEN STREET'S GRANDDAUGHTER. 
AGED NINE YEARS 

Years ago the Revolution 

Raged in fury o'er the land, 
O'er this country swarmed the British, 

And they fought our small brave band. 

At that time, in fair East Haven, 

With the goodly harbor nigh, 
Lived my old grandfather Morris, 

And some ships he did espy. 

They had come to sack the city, 

And it filled him with affright, 
And he thought and thought then 

What he'd do when it came night. 



RECORD OF AMOS MORRIS, 2ND 327 

Now he had a voice tremendous, 

Far and near it did resound, 
And the air was filled with echoes 

Almost for a mile around; 

And he went down to the seashore 

Where the waves wash up the sand. 
Ordering troops imaginary, 

Trying thus to save the land. 

And the British heard his orders 

Ringing through the evening air. 
And they thought that a large body 

Of Americans was there. 

So they turned their ships all seaward 

And they sailed them off so fast, 
That when once the sun had risen 

Grandpa could not see a mast.

"Assistant Demonstrator at Yale and successful physician at age of 34. 

"The subject of this sketch is one of the younger, but thoroughly 
valued instructors at the Yale Medical School, Dr. Leonard C. Sanford. 
In the class room Dr. Sanford is particularly successful, for he im- 
presses his hearers with the realization that he thoroughly understands 
his topic. 

" Dr. Sanford comes honestly by his knowledge of medicine and 
anatomy, through the fact that he is a son of the late Dr. Leonard 
J. Sanford, who until his death was one of New Haven's leading 
practitioners. The elder Sanford was regarded as one of the best 
physicians in New Haven and vicinity, and the son has fallen into a. 
large share of his practice. 

" Extreme modesty is one of Dr. Sanford's chief characteristics. He 
is a native of New Haven and has spent all his life here. He entered 
Yale in 1886 and was graduated from the academic department in 1890. 
Three years later he received his diploma from the Yale Medical School. 
His worth was recognized by the faculty of the school not many years 
later and he was made instructor in the subject of obstetrics."

Maurits Carol Constentene Van Loben Sels, second son of Peter Justus 
Van Loben Sels and Adele Virginia de Fremery, was born at the Grove 
in Oakland, Cal., July 26, 1881. 

A little history of the Van Loben Sels family may be interesting to 
the readers of this work. Peter Justus Van Loben Sels, born in Zulphen, 
Holland, in 1851, was the son of Jacob Van Loben Sels of Zulphen, 
Holland, who married Louisa Devering. Their son, Peter Justus Van 
Loben Sels, was born in Zulphen, Holland, in 1851. Peter Justus Van 
Loben Sels was Consul to the Netherlands nine years, knighted by Wil- 
liam HI of Holland ; made an officer of the Order of Eikin Kroon

He married Adele Virginia de Fremery, born in San Francisco, in 1857. 
She was the daughter of James de Fremery and Virginie Theresa Hecken- 
rath, who were married in Holland, 1853. 



LUCY MORRIS RECORD 347 

James de Fremery (above mentioned) came to California in 1849 to 
make arrangements for starting an importing house, which he accom- 
plished in 1850. It was located on Battery Street. It was burned during 
the earthquake and fire of 1906. He died May 28, 1898. His brother 
William is now (1908) at the head of the new house on Montgomery 
Street. He was also the founder of the San Francisco Savings Union 
on Calyovinia Street, corner of Webb, and was its president for twenty- 
five years. He was made a Knight of the Order of Netherlands Lion 
by William III of Holland. 

Peter Justus van Loben Sels reclaimed District No. 551 on the Sac- 
ramento River in California, a tract of nine thousand acres, beginning 
work in 1881. The tract was mostly water, fourteen feet deep, a lake 
with a few rods of marshy land as border, which was covered with reeds. 
The levees were so damaged during the flooding of the Sacramento 
River in April, 1907, that the tract was submerged, causing a loss of 
everything thereon. The break in the levees was repaired.

SARAH MORRIS RECORD 

(Continued from p. 348) 
The second marriage of Sarah Morris was to Edward Brockway, of 
Branford, Conn. A little history of her second marriage may be in- 
teresting to the reader: After the death of her first husband, Gersham 
Scott, she returned to her father. How long she remained a widow 
we do not know, but we do know that when late one night Edward 
Brockway came a-wooing, he not only received her father's consent, but 
his blessing and (we judge) God-speed. She was called, they became 
engaged and the wedding day was appointed that night ; carrying things 
at a lively rate for that slow-going age. Whether it was love at first 
sight, her father's admonition to accept a good offer, or the thought 
of the eight brothers and sisters younger than herself for whom her 
father had to provide, with the added burden of herself and little one, 
that caused her so speedily to make up her mind, we cannot tell, but 
will leave it for each one to decide. He was three times a widower 
with twelve children and three step-children, hers making the fourth. 
Tradition does not say her heart sank at the prospect, but we, looking 
at it from the standpoint of the present day, would judge so. The 
date of their marriage was thought to be the year 1785. They lived 
a few years in Branford, then moved to Hartland ; remained there about 
fourteen years. Four daughters were born to them. Hearing of the 
wonders of the New Connecticut, thinking also of his large family of 
sons and daughters, and trying to solve the problem how to provide 
homes for all, he sold his property and took up his line of march to 
the then far west. In six weeks' journey, over the mountains, they of 
course endured many hardships. There were pleasures also; at least 
my mother thought so as she remembered it when in later years she 
told us, her younger children, of the journey and her last visit with 
her mother to Morris Point as then called. She was seven years old 
and the youngest child. She walked fully half of the distance, as oxen 
were very slow travelers. The date of their arrival was June 19, 1800. 
My grandmother bravely took up her part of the work her husband 
had undertaken, both sacrificing their own comfort to settle their chil- 
dren in homes of their own. In order to do this, he purchased nearly 
four thousand acres of land, it being the northeast quarter of Hartford 
township, where some of his descendants still reside. For himself, a 
log house was quickly made ready, having neither doors, windows nor 
floor. Blankets served for a door, sticks plastered with mud for 
a chimney, and the earth tramped hard for a floor. Later a puncheon 



358 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

flonr (boards split out of a log) was provided; also doors and windows. 
All the grain that was ground had to be carried to Beaver, forty miles, 
on horseback. Indians were frequent visitors, never causing any trouble. 
They lived seven years in that cabin ; then a frame house was built 
on land joining the State line (still owned by his descendants), where 
he died seven years later. Mrs. Sarah Brockvvay lived twenty years after 
his death, the last four years a helpless invalid, caused by a fall, a 
charge for her youngest daughter, who bore that as bravely as did her 
mother the coming to a new country.

ity, that one of our most promising young men, Dio Burnett, had been 
killed by the cars. Such accidents are common, so much so that unless 
the victim is one bound to us by ties of blood, they attract but brief 
comment; but this death was an exception. Every heart in our com- 
munity was smitten. There was none whose life had not been made 
brighter by Dio's kindly and cheerful buoyant words. How it happened, 
we cannot know until the mists are cleared away and the many per- 
plexing problems of life are solved in the clearer light of eternity."

Norman Wilson Storer was born in 1868 in Orangeville, a little vil- 
lage in the northeastern part of the State of Ohio. Mr. Storer has 
always been a hard worker, and his early life was by no means an easy 
one. The death of his father when he was scarcely three years old, 
left his mother with five children to care for, and but a small amount 
of property with which to do it. Indomitable energy on her part, how- 
ever, overcame lack of fortune and she managed to give her children 
more than an average education. Mr. Storer also did much for himself 
in that line, and with the help given him by his mother, worked his way 
through college, taking the degree of Mechanical Engineer in Electrical 
Engineering at the Ohio State University in 1891. He was one of the 
first two who obtained that degree after the starting of the electrical 
engineering course in that University. Shortly after graduation, he en- 
tered the employ of the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Com- 
pany and has been associated with them ever since. He soon worked 
his way to the testing room, where his originality and persistence quickly 
brought him to the front and he was given charge of important experi- 
mental work. Having received an offer from his employers to enter the 
designing department in the spring of 1893, he first took up his work 
in that line as assistant to Mr. B. G. Lamme, then as now chief designer 
of the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company. From the 
beginning, Mr. Storer devoted himself particularly to direct current 
design. It is generally conceded by those who are familiar with both 
systems that alternate current apparatus is much simpler than that of 
the direct current type. As to whether or not it is easier to design 
alternating current than direct current apparatus, is a question that per- 
haps hut few men can answer, for the simple reason that but few men 
have ever actually designed commercial apparatus of both types. The 
commutator presents difficulties in large and sometimes even in small 
direct current generators of a kind that are not encountered in alter- 
nating current design, and for this reason it has been referred to by 
one of our most noted electricians as an " excrescence " on an alternating 
current generator. The direct current, however, is a necessity in many 
industries where the alternating current can never be used, and for that 
reason we may always expect direct current apparatus to be in demand. 
Among the many engineers who have undertaken the design of direct 
current apparatus, a small number have achieved marked success. One 
of the most noteworthy examples of the latter class, if we may judge 
by results, is the subject of this sketch. Mr. Storer's first work as a 



SARAH MORRIS RECORD 373 

designer was in developing small multipolar generators and motors, which 
were brought out in 1894, and which are still the standard of the West- 
inghouse Company. The fact that this line comprises between 250 and 
300 machines, may give some idea of the work involved. His next work 
was on engine type generators of all sizes and in the line, which was 
brought out some months later, were embodied all the valuable features 
of the small belted machines, together with the new points which con- 
tinual study had shown to be desirable. The result was a line of gen- 
erators which for general all around excellence remains unsurpassed. 
In later years, Mr. Storer's work has broadened out and he has designed 
machines for all classes of service, including those for lighting, power, 
railway generators and motors, electrolytic generators, as well as small 
motors for automobile work. Some examples of the larger machines of 
his design may be found in the power stations of the South Side Ele- 
vated of Chicago, the St. Louis Rapid Transit Company and the Boston 
Elevated, including 650 K. W., 800 K. W., 1500 K. W., 2250 K. W., and 
2700 K. W., engine-type railway generators. In electrolytic work, the 
direct coupled units at the Pittsburg Reduction Co., at Niagara Falls, 
ranging in size from 560 Kilowatts to 1,000 Kilowatts ; the 600 K. W. 
generators at the Raritan Copper Co., Perth Amboy, N. J., the 850 K. W. 
generators at the North American Chemical Company, Bay City, Mich., 
and the 810 K. W. generators at the Boston & Montana C. C. and S. M. 
Company, Great Falls, Mont., may be seen in daily operation and are 
fair samples of the class they represent. Mr. Storer is largely responsi- 
ble for the design of the present line of the Westinghouse railway motors 
and to him is also due the credit for the present method of rating motors 
of this class, which has been adopted by the above Company and which 
will undoubtedly come into general use as it becomes better known. 
Among the patents taken out by Mr. Storer, the most noteworthy is on 
the method of building laminated poles so as to prevent distortion of 
the field, thereby insuring good commutation over a very wide range of 
load. That his reputation as a careful designer and conscientious worker 
is widely recognized is attested by flattering offers he has received from 
other companies, both at home and abroad. Personally, Mr. Storer is a 
pleasant man to meet. His character is above reproach and his quiet 
modesty gives one an immediate and lasting confidence in his ability to 
do whatever he undertakes. Mr. Storer is a member of the American 
Institute of Electrical Engineers and of several other professional bodies.

John Morris, son of Capt. Amos Morris ist, of East Haven, born 
September 2, 1759, died June 22, 1844, married August 13, i777, Desire 
Street, who was born August 16, 1761, and died in 1829. She was the 
daughter of Rev. Nicholas Street and Desire Thompson of East Haven, 
Conn., and the granddaughter of Moses and Desire (Heminway) Thomp- 
son. The Rev. Nicholas Street was the second pastor of the Congre- 
gational church in East Haven, where he was ordained October 8, I755i 
and continued in the ministry for fifty-one years until his death, which 
occurred on the anniversary of his ordination. He was highly esteemed 
in the community and elsewhere for his personal excellence. In the- 
ology he was conservative and Calvinistic in distinction from the " New 
Lights " of his day. He delighted in doctrinal preaching, but " had the 
rare faculty of presenting abstruse subjects in a form of language in- 
teresting to his hearers," and such of his sermons as still exist are marked 
with the glow of practical earnestness as well as with intellectual ability. 
During the Revolution, he was in ardent sympathy with the American 
cause and did much to kindle and encourage the spirit of patriotism. 
He was a great friend of the Marquis De LaFayette and cordially enter- 
tained him while he was in New Haven. 

At the close of the Revolutionary War, 1783, Deacon John Morris and 
his son, William, decided to leave their pleasant home in New Haven, 
Conn., and go into the wilds of Jefferson County, N. Y., and select farms, 
which they did, one mile apart, six miles from Sacketts Harbor, in the 
town of Henderson, one and two miles from a little place called Smith- 
ville. They soon made a clearing and built a shanty to live in and pro- 



MORRIS-STREET RECORD 375 

tect them from the wild annuals, that were very fond of looking in 
their windows. The land was soon cleared and handsome houses built 
for each, which at this time (1909) are in a fine condition, as is also 
the home they left in New Haven, near the old Amos Morris home- 
stead.

fine mathematician and took a four years' course at De Ruyter Institute, 
from which he graduated. He then took a course in New York City, 
studying mechanics, in which line he continued until his death.

labor into which she entered with all the ardor of her nature, fully con- 
secrated to the service of the church and of God. For nearly thirty-four 
years she shared with her husband in all his labors and privations, sor- 
rows and joys of a life in the itinerancy, contributing much by her faith- 
ful work and beautiful example to the success that marked the ministry 
of her husband through all of these years. She had felt for several 
years that her health was declining, but her labors continued and were 
greatly blessed. Her last sickness was attended with great suffering all 
of which was endured without complaint. She felt and knew that final 
victory and eternal rest were sure, and on this assurance she waited 
patiently for the end. She was conscious to the last, recognizing her 
husband and children, three of whom were present, and comforting them 
with many words that told of that triumph she was then enjoying and 
of the home to which she was going. She died like those whose death 
is precious in the sight of the Lord, on Sunday morning, April 17, 1881, 
in the parsonage at Cape Vincent, N. Y. (Signed by J. L. Bingham.)

1868. James B. Geggie was born in the city of New York, of British 
parentage, his father being Scotch and his mother English. His early 
years were spent in northern New York, from whence he went to Canada, 
where he was engaged in business until the Civil War became imminent, 
when he returned to the United States and engaged in recruiting service 
in Pennsylvania, going himself with the third company he recruited. It 
became Company " F," 105th Reg. Pa. Infantry, which was attached to the 
1st Brigade, ist Division, Third Corps of the Army of the Potomac.

Duluth, III. from there to Minneapolis. Mrs. Geggie was appointed in 
1899 as National Organizer of the Woman's Home Missionary Society of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church. Her husband and children were much 
interested and wished her to accept the position, as she could leave her 
home with her husband and one daughter to look after it, the other 
members of her family being in homes of their own ; the great amount 
of travel being the only objection left, which she has overcome cour- 
ageously. She is well constituted for the work.

brightest and most promising boys in all Duluth. He was an unusually 
affectionate and lovable boy in the family circle, a faithful and diligent 
student in school, and in his general bearing he was courteous, polite and 
manly. It was but natural that such a boy should have been fondly loved 
in the home circle and have been a favorite among his playmates and 
associates and that he should have been looked upon as a boy of much 
hope and promise by all who knew him. While the sorrow for the 
death of this bright and unusually interesting boy will of course be felt 
the most keenly in the home in which there will now be a vacant chair, 
yet it will be shared by the people of this entire community." (Duluth

George Selden Shattuck died at his home on Walnut Street, Mead- 
ville, at one o'clock Tuesday, February 28, 1905, after a lingering illness 
from Bright's disease. He had been failing in health for a year or more, 
but his sickness was not thought to be serious until recently. 

George S. Shattuck was born in Meadville, April 19, 1842, and lived 
nearly his whole life in this city. He had a long and honorable service 
in the army during the Civil War, enlisting at Franklin, Penn., April 
25, 1861, as a private in Company " C," Tenth Regiment, P. V. I., for 
three years or during the war, serving until the close, June 11, 1864. 
He became a member of Sergeant Pfeiffer Post, No. 331, G. A. R., May 30, 
1883, and served three years as quartermaster. In 1888 he was elected 
commander of the Post. As treasurer of the Northwestern Association 
during a term beginning September 10, 1885, Mr. Shattuck proved an 
efficient and capable officer of a worthy organization. In 1888 he was 
elected as a delegate to the National Encampment of the G. A. R. held 
at Columbus, O. 

For a number of years, Mr. Shattuck was a successful traveling sales- 
man for the S. S. Marvin Company, of Pittsburg. When Major L. L. 
Shattuck assumed the office of register and recorder, Mr. Shattuck, who 
was a cousin of Major Shattuck, was appointed deputy and filled the 
office during the term of three years. 

Mr. Shattuck was a man of amiable disposition and had many admira- 
ble qualities of mind and heart, which endeared him to a wide circle 
of friends and acquaintances. He kept in touch with his army comrades, 
and was highly respected by members of the G. A. R., who always took 
pleasure in honoring him with positions of trust and esteem. Those 
who knew him best grieve most at their loss and extend their deepest

NANCY MORRIS RECORD 395 

The following is a record of Mr. Burt's experience in the Fiji Islands: 
" March 15, 1847, left my home in Meadville, Penn., and traveled 
through the western and southern states and from the mouth of the 
Mississippi River to the Falls of St. Anthony, thence back to New 
Orleans. Went to the war in Mexico in 1848. At the close of the war, 
went to California, where I remained until April, 1852; at this time, the 
lung trouble I had been afflicted with for some time developed an acute 
stage and having had pictured to me by an old schoolmate the dehghtful 
climate of some of the islands in the Pacific, I was seized with the fancy 
to spend my last days and die beneath the shade of a cocoa palm. On 
the voyage out, I went to work at once to learn navigation and how to 
manage a vessel, and as mate and owner of my own vessel off and on, 
I followed this life for over forty years among the South Sea Islands, 
the climate and the salt water restoring me to health. In my course I 
had spent some time in the Sandwich Islands and the Navigator Islands, 
both known by the name of Samoa, which has had the distinction in later 
years of being the home of the popular novelist, Robert Louis Stevenson. 
But it was amongst the Fiji Islands that I spent the greater portion of 
these forty years. In these Islands, I owned three of the finest and 
best paying cotton plantations in that great group of over 200 Islands. 
These plantations were all worked by cannibals ; I sometimes employed 
over 200 hands on a single plantation. In 1862 I laid aside my vessel 
for a time and went into the very heart of the great cannibal district and 
opened up my first plantation, which was the first to prove a financial 
success. These cannibal tribes that worked for me on this plantation for 
over two years paid me all the respect that could be paid to a white man 
under any circumstances. One year after I left that district, they killed, 
cooked and ate the Rev. Mr. Baker, Wesleyan Missionary, for daring to 
walk across their territory. Mr. Baker was my next neighbor nearest 
the Coast and I and many others warned him against going amongst these 
people, who had been driven from their own home in a religious war. 
When I left this Rew River, I took to my vessel again and went over to 
Kadaver and opened up with Mr. Underwood another large plantation 
under my own supervision. Then Mr. Underwood thought he would like 
to try his hands at managing cannibals and was anxious to open up the 
third plantation on the Siga Lake River, another great cannibal district. 
Against my better judgment, I allowed him to do so ; I in the meantime 
being financial partner and with my vessel keeping the two places in 
supplies. On returning one night from a voyage at sea, I found the place 
besieged by five hundred cannibals, but I got in without their knowing it. 
A few hours afterwards, the attack was made. In the hand to hand fight, 
when the clubs and tomahawks flew thick and fast, tho' I was wounded 
and covered with blood, I was recognized by the chief of the attacking 
party, whom I had once befriended. He called out the name the natives 



396 GENEALOGY OF THE MORRIS FAMILY 

had given me, 'Oh Dear, Oh Dear, Sin Nengo ' (King of Nengo, the 
name of an island I had once owned) 'do not slay my friend.' Seven 
of my people lay around me dead (poor fellows, they were afterwards 
cooked and eaten). He wanted to know what I was doing there. I 
told him I had come to save life. His reply was: 'Go, go at once or 
I cannot save you.' My answer was: 'I cannot go without my people.' 
He then said: 'What shall I do?' I said: 'Kill no more; spare 
life and take the trade.' This was a lucky thought for there were five 
hundred more cannibals in reserve that had not yet arrived and if those 
present waited, they would have to divide with the others. The con- 
sequence was, they made at once to carry of? the trade, cloth, axes, 
knives (of the latter there were i8o dozen) that would weigh over a 
pound each and as sharp as razors, so required careful handling. This 
occupied their attention and I was able to gather my people together and 
get them away, 112 in all. This was on the 8th day of January, 1869. 
I lost here of personal property alone $70,000. I now wound up my 
cotton planting business although I was a groat favorite with the can- 
nibals, as the foregoing will show, or we would all have shared the same 
fate as the seven. I again took to my legitimate business, trading and 
sea-faring life. In 1871, Mr. Underwood was killed by his own laborers. 
In 1865 I made a cruise to New Zealand, called on account of its great 
beauty ' The Britain of the Pacific' 

" On the I2th of January, 1886, I married at Auckland, New Zealand, 
Frances Rebecca Fletcher, youngest daughter of John Fletcher, hop mer- 
chant, of Leeds, England. On June 3, 1889, our daughter Madeline Rod- 
ney was born under two flags. I had spread the stars and stripes over 
the canopy of the bed and over that, without my knowledge, my wife's 
friends had laid the Union Jack of Great Britain. I left the Fiji Islands 
in November, 1894, and came to reside in Washington, D. C. My wife 
wound up my business in Fiji and joined me here in Washington in 
1896." 

" This perfect chain of names and lives 
Rescued from oblivion's grasp 
By patient, loving toil which gives 
To us the links to clasp. 

In tender memory, kith and kin 

For years unknown, and scattered wide, 

Into the circle are gathered in 

From far of? lands, o'er seas and tide. 

Warriors bold these records show 
Whose footprints in the sands of time 



JAMES MORRIS RECORD 397 

Are worthy deeds, to which we bow, 
Inspired we sing their requiem. 

Martyrs too whose lives were given 

For conscience' sake, with reverent love. 

We humbly gaze up into heaven 
And pray that we as faithful prove. 

From north and south and east and west 
The links are formed and welded true; 

Where e'er we go, where e'er we rest. 
Some trace of kinship comes to view. 

Thro' busy cities and obscure ways 

Our friend has sought, wit hskill and care. 

To gather up the scattered leaves 
That left the twigs and branches bare. 

And now the tree stands forth to view, 

From stem to branch in varied suit, 
A goodly sight for us and you 

Of buds and blossoms, flowers and fruit."

He married Elizabeth Ann Greenlee. She was born October 10, 183S, 
and was the oldest child of Jacob Davis Greenlee and Rachel (Chamber-

Venango, Crawford County, Pa., January 22, 1800, died July 12, 1883, in 
Amboy, Ashtabula County, O. ; was married to Rachel Chamberlin, of

was born April 18, 1766, died July 21, 1854. Elizabeth (Wykofif) Cham- 
berlin was born July 20, 1774, died August 21, 1849. They moved from 
Essex, N. J., about 1794, and settled in the wilds of Western Pennsylvania. 
The government offered as an inducement to settlers 200 acres of land 
to every man who would buy 100 acres. They were young married people 
and with two small children answered to the call, thus coming into posses- 
sion of three hundred acres of land. For six months the wife never saw 
the face of a woman. Meadville, fourteen miles away, was the nearest 
mill, and for more than one year everything had to be carried on men's 
backs to and from town. Their house was strongly built of logs to 
guard against wild animals. Often at night the screech of the panther 
and the slash of his tail was heard at the door. A few years after. Dea- 
con John's father died and he was called back to New Jersey to settle 
the estate; his own share being an even half bushel of silver dollars, which 
he brought back in a one-horse wagon. 

Elizabeth Wykoff is supposed to be the descendant of Peter Wykoff 
and of Low Dutch origin. 

Dr. John L. Morris died February 12, 1905, at his home in Kingsville, 
O. Death came suddenly early Sunday morning. Deceased had been in 
feeble health for several years past and his advanced age, seventy-four 
years, rendered him incapable of successfully combating the enemy. The 
sudden end was not expected and heart failure is ascribed as the direct 
cause of his death. He had been a resident of Kingsville thirty-six years. 
The widow, one daughter, Mrs. I. V. Nearpass, and one son survive; all 
living at home. 

Deceased was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church for forty 
years. He was one of the oldest and best known physicians and residents 
of Kingsville. He sank peacefully to rest, giving testimony on his dying 
bed, by a nod of his head, that Jesus was with him and that he was going 
home to rest.

RECORD OF DR. ASAHEL MORRIS 

3007 

Dr. AsAHEL. Morris, son of Captain Amos Morris, ist, born February 
14, 1766, lived with his parents on the farm at Morris Point until his 
twenty-first year, assisting in the farm work and studying as he had 
opportunity. He entered Yale College, took a full course of study and 
graduated, 1789. He studied medicine in Hartford, Conn. In 1793, settled 
as a physician in a place called " Tiossiock," on the Hoosic river, in the 



DR. ASAHEL MORRIS RECORD 445 

town of Cambridge, Washington County, N. Y. This place was settled 
by Holland Dutch people. In 1795 Dr. Morris married Catherine Van 
Ness_. daughter of Philip Van Ness, one of the largest land owners in 
the settlement. His ancestors immigrated from Holland. Philip Van Ness 
was a liberal, earnest Christian, one of the founders of the Reformed 
Dutch Church at " Tiossiock," afterwards called " Buskirk's Bridge." At 
his death he required a promise from his children and their famiUes that 
they would always support the old church, which promise was faithfully 
kept as long as any of his descendants remained in that vicinity. His 
grandson. Dr. Philip Van Ness Morris, at his death, donated a sum for 
the perpetual care of the church and cemetery belonging to it. 

Dr. Asahel Morris settled in Washington County at a time when the 
Dutch settlers were very suspicious and afraid of strangers from New 
England ; consequently, he had great difficulties to overcome before he 
could establish himself, gain medical practice and make a home among 
them. Catherine Van Ness was attractive and received much attention 
from wealthy and fashionable young men of Albany, one of whom her 
parents wished her to marry, so when it was apparent that she favored 
the suit of the " young Yankee doctor," they were filled with consterna- 
tion and anxiety for her welfare. A family council was called to consider 
what should be done. It was decided to send one of their number to 
Morris Point, East Haven, Conn., to investigate matters and find out the 
social standing and property, etc., of the Morris family. The early Dutch 
settlers thought highly of family standing and landed property and silver. 
After an absence of several weeks, the messenger returned, tired and 
jaded by his long, lonely ride on horseback through an almost unbroken 
forest. In answer to the anxious inquiries of friends he curtly told them 
he had found the Morris family were quite as respectable and of as 
good standing as the Van Ness family. Other explanations followed with 
the result that Catherine Van Ness became the wife of Dr. Asahel Morris, 
February 14, 1795, with a marriage portion of four hundred acres of land, 
four negro slaves and money to build a house. Dr. Morris gained and 
always kept the good will and respect of all his wife's family and rela- 
tives. His judgment and advice were sought in all matters of importance. 
Large estates were left for his settlement. He held places of trust in the 
town and county and was loved and respected wherever his name was 
known. He was a man of great integrity and honesty, was a careful, 
prudent and successful physician, and at his death was greatly mourned. 
His death occurred in July, 1830, caused by taking a malignant disease 
from a patient whom he had treated and nursed to convalescence. His 
wife contracted the same disease and died a few days later.

HENRY MORRIS 

Rev. Henry Morris, son of Asahel Morris and Catherine Van Ness, 
born September 19, 1803, died October 17, 1881. 

Rev. Henry Morris, after being taught the Heidelberg Catechism and 
baptised according to the usage of the Dutch Reformed Church, at the 
age of thirteen was placed in the academy at Cambridge under the care 
of Rev. David, Charles and Alexander Bullions. At the age of sixteen, 
entered Hamilton College, Sophomore class. Graduated, 1823. Spent two 
years at New Brunswick, N. J., after which he entered the Theological 
Seminary at Princeton, N. J. In February, 1829, he was licensed to 
preach by the Troy Presbytery, and for some months labored in that 
vicinity. His first sermon was preached in the old White meeting house 
in Cambridge. His first settlement was at (Wapping) East Windsor, 
Conn., where he gathered a church of eighty members. From 1832 to 
1834, he had charge of two churches at middle Granville, N. Y. ; from 
1834 to 1841, he served a church in Orwell, Rutland County, Vt. In 1841, 
he removed to Hartford, Conn., where he established a city mission, after 
which he was settled some years in Washington and Orange Counties, 
N. Y. During the War of the Rebellion, he was engaged in the service 
of the Christian Commission in North Carolina. In 1867, he removed to 
Binghamton, N. Y., where he lived several years, preaching as he was 
able in vacant churches. In 1876, he received the title of " Emeritus 
Pastor " from the classis of the Reformed Dutch Church of Orange, N. 
Y. In 1844, he delivered a series of sermons on Baptism that were pub- 
lished. In 1842, he published a book on the personal reign of Jesus 
Christ on earth, called " Modern Chiliasm as advocated by Miller and 
others." For several years he contributed to the press in the vicinity 
where he lived. His labors were greatly blessed in several of the places 
where he lived by many conversions and additions to the churches he 
served. Mr. Morris was always a close student of the Bible; it was his 
delight during his last days. He often remarked that he had never re- 
gretted giving his life to preach the gospel. 

Mr. Morris married Caroline A. Smith, May 10, 1830. She was born 
in Hartford, Conn., September 18, 1809, died March 27, 1904. Her fath-

"Mrs. Morris was the daughter of Deacon Normand and Mary (Board- 
man) Smith, and was born in Hartford, Conn., September 18, 1809. As 
a girl she attended Miss Catherine Beecher's School, where Harriet 
Beecher, afterwards Mrs. Stowe, was a teacher, and later she was grad- 
uated from a boarding school in Wethersfield, Conn. In 1830, she was 
married to Henry Morris, a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church. 
They resided in several towns in Connecticut and New York State, and 
in 1867 came to Binghamton. In 1880 they celebrated their golden wed- 
ding. The year following, Mr. Morris died. For several years Mrs. 
Morris had been an invalid confined to her home. Since 1868 she was 
a member of the First Congregational Church of this city, and was at 
the time of her death its oldest member. 

" Mrs. Morris was the mother of fourteen children, of whom seven 
are now living: Martha B. Morris, Mrs. E. H. Kinney, Philip V. N. 
Morris, all of this city; Mrs. J. G. Laing, of Dallas, Pa., Mrs. Eliza K.

" On February 2Sth, 1901, at her home in this village occurred the death 
of Mrs. William P. Boardman. She was the oldest daughter of Rev. 
Henry Morris, for many years an honored minister of the Dutch Re- 
formed Church. For three years Mrs. Boardman had been confined to 
her home and an invalid's chair. Although from the beginning of her 
illness a great sufferer, she so effectually suppressed her physical infirmity 
that her room became the favorite gathering place for her friends. There 
was always to be found a cheery presence, bright, stimulating conversation, 
and a sympathetic appreciation of the cares of others that always gave 
a ready response of comfort and courage. She was possessed of marked 
ability and intellectual endowments, a lover of books and her reading 
covered a wide range of subjects. Keenly interested in all the affairs of 
the day, her resources of study and travel, combined with a quaint humor 
peculiarly her own, made her a most charming and fascinating com- 
panion. Mrs. Boardman's life has been an inspiration to all who knew 
her. A woman of deep religious convictions, her faith laid hold upon 
the deep things of God and through the intense suffering of the last 
weeks of her life, she was never heard to question or rebel, desiring to 
wait God's time for the release, longing to depart and be with Christ, 
which is far better. Mrs. Boardman was sixty-nine years of age and 
in September next would have celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of her 
marriage. She was the mother of five children, four of whom survive 
her. Funeral services were held at her late residence on Wednesday 
afternoon, February 27th, at three o'clock. Rev. Dr. J. S. Clark, of St. 
Thomas' Church, Amenia Union, officiating. The remains were taken 
to Binghamton, N. Y., where her aged mother resides. The sympathy 
of the community is extended to the husband and children so sorely 
bereaved. 

" Mrs. Boardman's son, Albert H. Boardman, also resides in this city." 
To Mrs. William P. Boardman the readers of this record of Dr. Asahel 
Morris are indebted. The help she gave the compiler of this work was 
some of her last work.

married, April 15, 1839, to the Rev. J. D. Hughes, who died March 3, 
1870. 

Of Harriet (Hatheway) Kent-Hughes, there could be pages written in 
testimony of her rare and sterling qualities. As a young bride in Septem- 
ber, 1823, she went from the home of her childhood and the culture of the 
east as a pioneer of the Western Reserve. Adapting herself to her sur- 
roundings, she developed a character remarkable in fortitude, energy and 
wisdom. Under the most trying circumstances her hopeful cheerfulness 
shed its beneficent rays all about her, and the gentleness of her nature, 
coupled with great moral strength, left its impress on all with whom she 
came in contact. As the young wife, the widowed mother of a young 
family in a comparatively new country, or, afterwards, as the wife of a 
clergyman, she always did her full duty in life. On July 4, 1850, she was 
one of the most enthusiastic visitors at the old Morris homestead and was 
active in perpetuating the history of the family name, in which she took 
laudable pride. 

Martin Kent and Harriet (Hatheway) Kent resided first at Suffield, 
Portage Co., O., on a farm; afterwards at Mogadore, O.
